Aboriginal Head Start Program

Head Start is a community program, which includes the cooperation of educators, physicians, nurses, social workers, parents, and teachers, in an effort to improve the development of children from 2 ½ to 5 years old. Educators work with small groups of children enabling them to give more attention to children's individual needs. See the following link for more information:
