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.

Mission Statement: “The Children for the Future Head Start program exists to help Aboriginal children develop their social and educational skills.”

The primary goal of the Aboriginal Head Start is to foster the child’s self esteem and enhance each child’s ability to want to learn.

We recognize the family as the primary teachers of their child and will respect and empower parents to do so.
