COVID-19 UPDATE - ABORIGINAL HEADSTART
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there has been significant changes in regards to child care in Ontario that will affect the way in which we are able to provide our program to the families in our community. One of the changes having the greatest impact on our program being the REDUCED group size/COHORT grouping which significantly limits the amount of spaces available for our child care program. As we appreciate our community’s interest in our program, we are mandated to offer spots to those families that meet the mandatory selection criteria and are in the highest need (low income, high risk, families living on assistance, etc.). If you have any questions regarding the AHS program please do not hesitate to call and speak to the Program Coordinator, Charity McMahon at 274-7244 or email at email@example.com.
Application deadline for the 2020/2021 program year will be on Monday, July 13th, 2020. Applications can be emailed to the Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or sent via fax at 274-8500, or dropped off at the AHS building in the mail box located at 308 Butler Avenue. Please be sure to sign and date all applications. Miigwech!
