In partnership with Métis Nation British Columbia, we have opened a licensed no-fee Indigenous Head Start childcare program for Métis, First Nations, and Inuit children.

No Fee & State of the Art

Our childcare centre is a safe, nurturing and culturally enriched space where every child is cared for, encouraged and supported to promote curiosity and lifelong learning.

Programs

The preschool environment is designed to offer engaging and diverse activities that will provide children with a variety of learning experiences in a creative atmosphere. All activities in our Preschool Programs are created to develop fine motor skills, oral expression, problem solving qualities, self-esteem and responsibility, social-emotional interactions and physical movement within a culturally specific program.
