JBCS Strongstart Programme

Kris Munoz is  the programme leader for the James Bay Community School Strong Start.

The James Bay Community School StrongStart Programme is a free drop-in early learning program for children aged 0 to 5 years. Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver while attending the program. Our wonderful programme is conducted by Kris Munoz, a qualified early childhood educator who leads a variety of learning activities designed to help children get ready for success in kindergarten.

Parents and caregivers attending our JBCS StrongStart center can expect organized sessions like story time, play activities, and a healthy snack. Discover new ways to support your child’s learning. Make connections with others parents and caregivers who attend and gain important information about additional services and resources in our community.  Please make sure to sign in each time you attend the program.  It is  important that accurate numbers of participants are recorded to keep our programs open.

James Bay StrongStart is open daily from 8:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
Registration forms are available upon arrival.
Please ensure that you sign your child/children in when you arrive.
Storytime in the Library is each Tuesday morning at 10:50 a.m.
