Simonds’ StrongStart Program
StrongStart Programming Changes Across the District
Please take note of the following StrongStart program changes which may impact your family.
- Beginning in September 2021, StrongStart at James Hill Elementary will be moving to a new site at Donna Gabriel Robins Elementary.
- Beginning in September 2021, StrongStart at North Otter Elementary will be moving to Parkside Centennial Elementary to expand the existing program on site.

StrongStart is a FREE early learning drop in program for children birth to 5 years of age. Parents and/or caregivers attend this fully funded Ministry of Education program with their children. Teacher Sam is an Early Childhood Educator who will provide a rich play based learning environment full of activities. Activities provided will promote opportunities where your child/children can make new friends, explore new activities and learn skills that will assist them in the preparation and successful transition to kindergarten. As adults you are encouraged to get involved in the learning activities with your children, like stories, music, art and playing games. You are your child’s first role model and teacher. Please feel free to ask questions, share comments or suggestions with Sam. Join StrongStart as we learn new ways to support your child’s learning, get information about community resources and make valuable connections with others attending the program. We look forward to the partnerships we will build together.
