Opportunities

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

Growth

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

Wisdom

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

Local

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

Community

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




Four Feathers Inc. is a non-profit organization, which became incorporated in July 1996, and is governed by a Board of Directors. Our Head Start assists Aboriginal families with positive, contemporary and traditional teachings while addressing all six components of Education, Culture & Language, Nutrition, Health Promotion, Parental Involvement and Social Supports into our daily programs. Head Start provides supports so the children will have successful immersion into elementary levels of education, along with a sense of pride of their Aboriginal heritage.

Four Feathers Inc. is for young Aboriginal children, ages 3-5 years, residing within the Gilbert Park community and surrounding area. We provide a bus service for children within our catchment area (Inkster to Selkirk/King Edward to McPhillips). Our morning program is from 9 to noon, with our afternoon program from 1-4, Monday to Thursday. We provide a full breakfast for the morning program and a full lunch/snack for the afternoon program.
