Strong Start

Alexander is pleased to host a Strong Start program. 

Participate with your young child (aged birth to five) in school-based early learning activities – including stories, music and art. At no cost to families, this early learning drop-in program helps prepare children for success in Kindergarten.

StrongStart BC programs provide rich learning environments designed for early learning development – language, physical, cognitive, social and emotional. Qualified early childhood educators 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.

Strong Start at Alexander Elementary runs from 8:30-11:30 am four days a week. Please enter through the outside doors at the back of the school. There will be signs pointing to the classroom. Miss Barb provides activities for children and their parents.  The program is free, there is no minimum nor maximum attendance expectations but registration is required.  You must register online to attend our StrongStart program. 

On Thursdays, it's a park day from 9:00-11:00am, weather permitting.
