Aboriginal Headstart Program

The Aboriginal Head Start Program supports early intervention strategies to address the learning and developmental needs of young children living on-reserve. The programming is centered around six components: education; health promotion; culture and language; nutrition; social support; and parental/family involvement.

This program is delivered to children from the age of 3 up to when they enter kindergarten. Children in the program are given opportunities to develop self-confidence and a greater desire for learning.
