The parent is the first and most important teacher in a child's life. Campbell River School District supports parents in this important role by providing a free, early learning program for young children from birth to Kindergarten and their parents or caregivers.
Under the direction of licensed early childhood educators, parents and children participate in early learning activities, such as story time, music, singing, art and puzzles.
Children gain problem-solving skills and build self-esteem and the social skills that will help them when they enter school. Parents and caregivers learn activities that they can do at home to further support their child's learning and nutrition, as well as connect with other parents and caregivers.
Under Stage 3 of the K-12 Education Restart Plan we are looking into a variety of options that will enable us to resume in-person StrongStart BC programs. Programing will be at reduced capacity with a limited number of families attending in order to maintain safe physical distancing. There may also be a reduction in the number of hours per day and/or days per week each StrongStart Centre operates to accommodate cleaning and disinfecting protocols.
The district has four StrongStart Centres at Georgia Park, Cedar, Sayward and Sandowne Elementary Schools. As well as, a mobile StrongStart which visits Quadra and École Willow Point Elementary Schools one day a week.
Please continue to visit our website for the latest updates. We look forward to when we can welcome you back in person!
