About HeadStart Program

Programs/Centres

The Headstart Program/Centres are licensed child-care facilities established to ensure Indigenous children have a solid developmental foundation and are well equipped to progress through the continuum of growth and evolution through the provision of a healthy, nurturing and enriching care and learning environment.

Program delivery and teaching strategies follow the Aboriginal Headstart Health Canada curriculum as well as the First Nations Education Initiative corporation’s training and guidelines. They must also adhere to provincial licensing standards.

The Headstart programs/centres implement a broad range of early detection and intervention strategies to assess and respond to the behavioural, social, and learning progress and needs of children.
