Eliza Archie Head Start Program
The BC First Nations Head Start is a program funded by First Nations Health Authority to enhance early childhood development, school readiness and overall family health and wellness for First Nations preschool children (birth to six years old) on reserve. The Eliza Archie Head Start creates and maintains a friendly, supportive environment where children are respected and valued as unique individuals. Within this environment we will nurture the physical, intellectual, emotional, social and cultural development of each child. The intake process operates year round, and a Parent's Handbook and program application forms are available at the day-care center.
