Aboriginal Headstart Program

Kermode Friendship Society Aboriginal Head Start

The Aboriginal Head Start Program at the Kermode Friendship Society in Terrace BC is a brand new program that the whole community is very excited about. We are in our second year and serve 40 children of Aboriginal descent in two preschool classes Monday to Thursday, with a staff of 7 employees.


We have a good working relationship with other community programs such as the CAPC parenting program, Early Childhood Development program and the Child Development Center, our licensing office including the nutritionist and environmental health office, and the School District.


The Head Start Program is committed to assisting Aboriginal children to develop with the best possible support. Everyone in the program - our staff, Parent Advisory Council, families, and our community - all play a significant role in the life of every child that enters our program.


Children need to discover, enjoy, play, explore and have an opportunity to learn new things. Aboriginal Head Start is something to celebrate!
