Our Doors Are Open

We are excited to have children and caregivers return to our centres for either In-Person, Zoom, or Wilderness Wednesdays.

We are operating at a reduced capacity, which means fewer families and fewer hours per day and/or days per week to accommodate cleaning and disinfecting protocols. We ask that only ONE adult attend with children aged 36 months or older. There will be no Baby or Toddler program at this time.

For families unable to book an in- person appointment, we offer regular Zoom sessions, as well as a “rain or shine” outdoor, Wilderness Wednesday program.

To ensure Health & Safety protocols, NO DROP-INS allowed, online booking for all sessions will be required (in-person, Zoom, and outdoor). Please register and book appointments here, no more than once a week.

Pre-Booking of Apppointments Required -No Drop-ins

Pre-booking will be required through StrongStart Appointments here for every session and centre.

Registration Information is on our StrongStart section of the District website here and posted on the exterior doors of our StrongStart centres.

On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays there will be room for up to four families to register for a face to face, in centre program. We ask that each family book ONLY one face to face session per week to allow for all families to share time.

On Wilderness Wednesdays, families will also book an appointment here and meet at a pre-designated spot in the community for Outdoor Learning opportunities: RAIN or SHINE. Meeting details will be emailed to families with appointments. On Wednesdays, caregivers , family members, and children will not enter the school and must be dressed to be outside the entire 90 minutes. This means wearing boots and a raincoat.

Every day families MUST answer the Daily Health Declaration on the next page, prior to coming into the centre and contact the centre directly in the event you cannot keep your appointment.

Adults will be asked to wear masks and everyone will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon arrival, plus maintain physical distancing at all times.

We can’t wait to see you!
