Fresh Air Fridays and more! SD 71’s StrongStart programs are in full swing…

Every week you can find StrongStart out and about in the community enjoying “Fresh Air Fridays”! At these events families will find materials to engage with playful exploration with their child and have the opportunity to meet other children and parents. Our StrongStart facilitators provide expertise in play and supporting parents on the journey of raising young children.  All parents or caregivers with young children (ages 0-5) in the Comox Valley are welcome! We would love to have you join us!

StrongStart programs are an important part of our District mission of cultivating a collaborative community for lifelong learners to grow and thrive. We know that learning begins in infancy and as adults who care for children, we are always learning too! We have seven StrongStart centres at neighbourhood schools.

To find out where we will be next Friday check out our Facebook pages here:, where you will find more information about StrongStart and find a centre near you.
