StrongStart Early Learning Centres provide a free drop-in program for children 5 and under and their parent, grandparent, or caregiver.

School District 68 has eight StrongStart Centres.
Birth certificates must be provided when registering your child.

Thanks to the financial support from the Ministry of Education, School District 68 is supporting families to become involved in early learning and providing opportunities where they can spend time learning through play with their children.
