How are our StrongStart BC Educators and programs adapting their service and commitment to the Early Learning development and Social and Emotional Well-Being of young children as well as maintaining connections and relationships during COVID-19?
Safely, with grace and commitment that’s how.
Let’s check in with some of our StrongStart BC CR4YC partners and see how they have recreated and adapted their programs. We thank those communities for sharing. It is our hope that this information serves as an invite to tweak programs under the current circumstances and in doing so, help other communities to renew their commitment to this never more important than now, Early Learning program.

Background from Ministry of Education, bced.gov.bc.ca
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 opportunities to make friends and interact with others of similar ages. StrongStart BC centres operate on a drop-in basis during the school year, and are intended for attendance by children ages 0-5, along with their parent or caregiver.
