January Booking Updates

In response to the high number of requests from families to attend StrongStart, please read the following updates that will start in January.

  • Choose only 1 day a week to attend and attend only 1 StrongStart Centre.
  • Please have only 1 adult attend to allow for more spaces for children during this time.
  • If you are unable to attend on one of your days, due to illness or an emergency, you must call the school to let them know you are away.
  • If you need to cancel your booking, email EarlyYears@sd68.bc.ca.
  • A family that misses 2 bookings at the beginning of the month will be removed and the spots will be offered to the family next on the waitlist. Your school and/or StrongStart facilitator will contact you to confirm if you will be attending or not.
  • Reminder: You do not need to re-register your child before booking.

*New* Waitlist: As StrongStart is in high demand, if you do not get a spot, you can now request to be added onto a waitlist after the monthly bookings have gone live. The waitlist will be used if a family cancels their monthly bookings and spots are opened.

Please email EarlyYears@sd68.bc.ca with the following information:

  • name of adult and child
  • school site
  • day(s) of the week you are available to attend
  • phone number
