Strong start program

This program, for French-speaking children aged 0 to 5, is offered from September to June.

The Franc Départ program is a provincial initiative of the Ministry of Education, implemented by the Conseil scolaire francophone. Its mission is to welcome children aged between 0 and 5 years old free of charge , accompanied by an adult (parent or other person responsible for the child), and to invite them to participate in a variety of activities in French. .

We thank the government of British Columbia, and more specifically the Ministry of Education, for its financial contribution.

Examples of activities:
Animated activity: Activities planned by the educator that promote learning about group life while involving families.
The circle: Young and old come together to sing, dance, tell and listen to stories and take part in games.
The period of free games: Parents and children have the opportunity to discover many educational games together.
