A note from our Valley Strong Start Facilitator Pati McLaughlin
Hello Strong Start families in the Slocan Valley!

Please join me for an online program every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10am!
We will be able to see each other and say hello at the very beginning of the call and say farewell at the end. Otherwise, participants will be muted and get to sing a long from home to all the songs we know and love!

I will also be sharing stories, rhymes, art ideas and activities.
Zoom Zoom Zoom we are going to see each other soon!!!
Looking forward to seeing each and every one of you – and please feel free to share this link.

Please note Friday, April 10 and Monday, April 13 are statutory holidays that we will be observing.
Happy Easter Weekend 😄

This is a work in progress, and we will see how it flows and grows! I am aiming to fill an hour to start. Please email me with any feedback or suggestions or just to say hi:

Participate with your young child (aged birth to five) in play-based, early learning activities – including stories, music and art. At no cost to families, this early learning drop-in program helps prepare children for success in Kindergarten.

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 opportunity to make friends and interact with others of similar ages.

The overall learning experience is shared as parents and caregivers attend with their children and are encouraged to get involved in activities like telling stories, playing games and serving healthy snacks. Join us to learn new ways to support your children’s learning, get information about community programs and services and make valuable connections with others attending the program.
