Kermode Aboriginal Head Start

The Kermode Aboriginal Head Start Program is a Preschool Program designed for children ages 3 to 5 of Aboriginal descent. Our program is one of the twelve (1 of 12) Urban Aboriginal Head Start Programs in BC. Our primary focus is to provide services for the children and their families support Early Childhood Development and instill pride in their Aboriginal heritage. Our goal is bringing them to the school readiness stage in order to help ensure an easy transition into Kindergarten.

Our program focuses on the 6 Components of Aboriginal Head Start and we include these components in every day curriculum and activity planning and implementation. The 6 Components are: 
1.Culture and Language
2.Education and School Readiness
3.Health Promotion
4.Nutrition
5.Social Support
6.Parent, Elder and Family Involvement

Parent, Elder and Family involvement is the main factor to making our program a success. We believe that Parents are their child’s primary teachers and strongly encourage them to be a part of our program.

Our Staff consists of 7, the Program Manager, the ECE Floor Supervisor, 2 ECE Staff, Bus driver/Maintenance, and the Cook. Our program operates from September to June of each year.
