Strong Start® programs are making a difference in the lives of thousands of children each year. Our partnerships enable us to reach more children in communities and neighbourhoods. We rely on the generosity of caring volunteers, financial supporters, and program partners to support our work and ensure all children receive a strong start in school and in life.

Assessment Results

Assessment is a cornerstone of Strong Start literacy programs. Children that participate in our Letters, Sounds and Words™ program and our Get Ready for School™ program are assessed before and after the program, with our summarized findings shared on this page.


It takes a village to raise a child and with the generous support of thousands of caring volunteers and champions, we are having a tremendous impact.


Here are a few testimonials which show together we can make a difference in the life of a child.
