We help provide Aboriginal children with a positive sense of self, a desire for learning, and opportunities to develop as successful young people.


AHS prepares Aboriginal children for their school years by supporting their spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical growth.


Parents, guardians and extended family are supported as the child's first and most influential teachers, and the wisdom of elders is valued.


Our projects are locally designed, locally controlled, and administered by non-profit Aboriginal organizations.


Aboriginal Head Start directly involves parents and the community in the management and operation of projects.

Abinoje Aboriginal Head Start Program

The goal of the Abinoje program is to provide a happy, safe learning environment for pre-school children. This is a shared responsibility between parents, staff, and the Swan River Friendship Centre.

The program enhances and promotes the six components of the Public Health Agency of Canada.
