What is a StrongStart Centre?

StrongStart Programs provide opportunities for early learning through play in an environment carefully designed to support exploration and discovery.  Qualified Early Childhood Educators lead a variety of activities designed to support children on their learning path before they enter school.

Please note: StrongStart Programs follow the school calendar and will be closed on the same day as the schools. Please refer to school websites for schedules, centre closures and information.
