About the Aboriginal Head Start Program
The Zaagi-idiwin Aboriginal Head Start Program is a culturally specific school readiness program offered to Urban Indigenous families with children ages 2.5 to 5 years. The Aboriginal Head Start Program is funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and sponsored by the United Native Friendship Centre. It is a licensed child care program through the Ministry of Education.
Our goal is to meet the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical needs of the children. We provide programming in six core areas: education and school readiness, Aboriginal culture and language, health promotion and nutrition, parental involvement and social support.
