The Prince George Head Start Program (PGAHS) is funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada under the Aboriginal Head Start in Urban and Northern Communities (AHSUNC) Initiative. Our Host Agency is the Prince George Native Friendship Centre.

PGAHS offers a comprehensive program designed to meet the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs of Aboriginal preschool children (ages 3-5) living in the urban setting. The team facilitates a safe, non-judgmental environment during the children’s formative years, encouraging holistic growth by understanding the importance of community, family involvement, cultural awareness, and respect. The cultural curriculum is based on the Carrier language, which also recognizes cultural diversity and respects the traditional land of the Lhedli T’enneh. Our program recognizes the parent/caregiver as the natural advocate of the child and whose primary concern is for the health and well-being of Aboriginal children. We work closely with our parents/caregivers who meet as a PAC once per month or more, and workshops/training are available, including Nobody’s Perfect, Stress Management, Child Safe, Food Safe, and Communication Skills. The PGAHS and POFAHS programs come together in the summer months to provide a six-week program for children on the waitlist who will be entering kindergarten in September. This session is designed to encourage a strong sense of identity and to prepare the children for the structures and routines of kindergarten.
