Participate with your young child (aged birth to five) in a free, play-based program. StrongStart BC programs provide rich learning environments designed for early learning development – language, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional. Qualified early childhood educators employed by the Langley School District lead learning activities where children find opportunity to make friends and interact with others of similar ages.
The overall learning experience is shared as parents and caregivers attend with their children and are encouraged to get involved in activities like telling stories, playing games, and serving healthy snacks. Join us to learn new ways to support your children’s learning, get information about community programs and services, and make valuable connections with others attending the program. Centres are open Mondays through Fridays, except on school holidays and Pro-D days. In the event of inclement weather or power outages, call the school before you come or check school websites.
At no cost to families, StrongStart is offered at nine Langley locations. See locations listed in the Frequently Asked Questions below.
The Early Learning Department is pleased to announce the District will continue to offer the StrongStart program for the 2021/2022 school year, taking direction from the Ministry of Education and Provincial Health Office. Drop-in sessions will start Monday, September 27, with a maximum of 20 visitors in the centre. All sessions will be 2.5 hours, and facilitators will offer a minimum of one outdoor session per week.
