StrongStart Centres provide parents and caregivers an opportunity to share in their child's early learning experiences and learn and grow together through PLAY.
The Centre's facilitators are qualified Early Childhood Educators. They will provide carefully selected materials and activities that promote the development of social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and early literacy skills necessary for lifelong learning.
Ready, Set, Learn is an initiative that recognizes that families need positive connections with the school system and community agencies that provide relevant resources and information. This program is designed to help you and your preschooler get ready for success in school and become a lifelong learner. All our Elementary Schools in School District No. 5 (Southeast Kootenay) will be offering an opportunity for all 3- to 5-year-olds and their parents or guardians to receive an information/activity package. This event is a partnership between the province, the district, and the early childhood teachers in Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood, Jaffray, and Elkford.
