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.
