StrongStart Program

StrongStart is a free drop-in program for children 5 and under.  Children visiting must be accompanied by their parent, grandparent, or caregiver. StrongStart at View Royal Elementary is open from 8:45am until 11:30am Monday to Friday.  The program is led by our facilitator, Amy Grbavec, who is a certified Early Childhood Educator.

At StrongStart, your child will explore and play with you in an environment that is friendly, safe, inspiring, and collaborative. You will meet other families and get to share in the excitement and successes of your child’s early learning experiences. Parents and caregivers at StrongStart will enjoy sessions like story time, play activities, gym time, and a healthy nutritious snack. We invite you to drop in and discover new ways to support your child’s learning. There are also wonderful opportunities for parents and caregivers to gain important information about additional services and resources in our community.

For more information, please feel free to contact Amy Grbavec via the office at View Royal at 250-479-1671 or send an email to You can also visit the district’s StrongStart page at: Thank you for your interest!
