Julie Toews - Georgia Park Elementary

Meet Julie. Julie is a mother of 3 boys and 1 girl, with one of the boys in his 4th year of University. She became a StrongStart facilitator because of her love of working with children and their families as well as the community.

Julie was born in Saskatchewan but has lived in Campbell River since she was four. She is a creative person who loves to spend her time crafting and attending local markets with her wares. She also likes to run to stay active.

To her StrongStart program, Julie brings her positive energy, sense of humour and broad knowledge base of the community. She also brings a wealth of knowledge on the development of children of all ages and stages.  The number one thing that Julie would like you to know is that she genuinely enjoys spending time with children. Three words that describe Julie best would be; positive, enthusiastic and confident.

Something that may surprise you about Julie is that she has run four 15km races. Julie is proud of the StrongStart community that she has created with her families at Georgia Park and looks forward to another wonderful year with StrongStart.

 About the StrongStart Program

​StrongStart is a free, drop-in, early learning program for young children from birth to kindergarten and their parents or caregivers.

Under the direction of a licensed early childhood educator, 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 learn activities that they can do at home to further support their child's learning; nutrition; and make valuable connections with other parents or caregivers.

While the program is free, parents do need to complete a registration form so that such items as emergency contact inforamtion is on file. Please bring your child's birth certificate with you to register.

For information on the days and times the StrongStart Centre is in operation, please see the StrongStart schedule below.
