StrongStart BC Evaluation – parent survey

As we continue to evaluate all aspects of the StrongStart BC early learning program with the help of a talented research team from the Atkinson Centre for Society and Child Development (OISE/University of Toronto), we need some help to encourage parents to share  their experiences in the programs.

We are asking StrongStart BC facilitators to please share the following information with the parents in your program. The more robust the response, the better information we have to support and continue the fantastic work of StrongStart BC.

The Ministry of Education is working with a team of researchers from the Atkinson Centre for Society and Child Development (University of Toronto) to evaluate the effectiveness of the StrongStart BC Early Learning centres. 

The study will  inform the long term planning of StrongStart BC, and investigate the program’s impact on young children’s development and its impact on parents, caregivers, educators, administrators and the community.

 All information collected will be kept strictly confidential.  Please share your views to help make StrongStart BC even better.

Thanks for helping spread the word,

Ministry of Education Early Years Team.

    Hi,

    I’m confused… didn’t this parent survey go out last year? I thought the final report on this research was due this fall?

    Cheers,

    • Hi Gloria,

      The research team is conducting further focus group and district visits throughout the fall. The final report will be available December 2016.
      We will send another communication out shortly in case some folks missed the notification of the timeline change!

      Thanks,
      Cat
