Awahsuk Aboriginal Head Start preschool is in Surrey, on the shared territory of the Stolo, Kwa-Kwa, Semiamhoo and Katzie First Nations. Our Host Agency is the Fraser Regional Aboriginal Friendship Centre.

Our Awahsuk Family includes longtime staff members who are committed to creating a community-based centre for Indigenous families in Surrey. Our families come from all different Nations and their cultures are reflected in the program.

Early childhood teachings about culture are key in ensuring identity, heritage and realizing the important values and wisdom of our Knowledge Keepers. Our dedicated Elders and Cultural Teachers provide the children, families and staff with ongoing weekly opportunities for pow-wow dancing, drumming, traditional teachings, smudging, dancing and learning about what it means to be Indigenous. Our staff and Elders join in teaching our children the Halq’eme’ylem language. All children that graduate from Head Start receiving their own Regalia.

Each year we have a new Parent Advisory Committee since AHS is meant to be parent-driven and work as a positive partnership that supports children to grow and develop, feel good about themselves and to promote lifelong learning.
