Ready, Set, Learn‚Äč

Ready, Set, Learn venues are held at all of  our elementary schools and we, as educators and community members, have worked collaboratively to share ideas and strategies on how best to support young children in becoming lovers of language and books. It truly has been a "grass roots" project, borne from the idea that we truly can make a difference when we work together as a community to "raise readers" in Mission.

The provincial information on  ‚ÄúReady, Set, Learn", and  "Early Learning Framework" can be found by clicking the links.  ‚Äč



StrongStart is a no-cost play-based program for children and their parent/caregiver.  Typically, it starts the third week of September and follows the school calendar.  We provide rich play-based learning environments to support early learning development ‚Äď language, physical, cognitive, social, and emotional aspects.  Children have opportunities to meet and interact with children of similar ages, and parents/caregivers become part of a supportive community.  StrongStart is a wonderful way to become familiar and comfortable with the school system and assists with a gentler transition to Kindergarten. 

Families will register at the StrongStart site of their choice, but can attend any StrongStart centre.
