Nak'azdli Whut'en Aboriginal Head Start Childcare

** Child care will be closed for renovations for the month of July last day open June 29th, 2023 to August 8th, 2023 (PENDING on contractors) **

 

Effective April 1, 2022, Nak’azdli Whut’en Childcare Centre moved under Aboriginal Head Start on Reserve and will be known as Nak’azdli Whut’en Aboriginal Head Start Childcare and as such there will no longer be Childcare Fees.

As an Aboriginal Head Start on Reserve, we will only be accepting children from Aboriginal, Inuit, and Metis decent.

However, priority will be given to Nak'azdli Whut'en members.

 

The goals of Nak’azdli Whut’en Aboriginal Head Start Childcare and Nak’azdli Whut’en Aboriginal Head Start are:

  • Ensure each child(ren) is provided with an opportunity to develop their physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and cultural growth in a safe, healthy environment.
  • Promote healthy choices by role modeling and encouragement.
  • Assist each child(ren) in their development with age-appropriate activities and experience.
  • Keep parents/guardians informed on their child(ren)’s daily activities.
  • Provide an environment free from any type of racism, marginalization, or discrimination.
  • Nak’azdli Whut’en Aboriginal Head Start Childcare and Nak’azdli Whut’en Aboriginal Head Start will establish a comprehensive curriculum that reflects the developmental needs of this program as well as the six program components: Nutrition, Education, Family Involvement, Social Supports, Health Promotion, Culture, and Language.

 

Providing a safe and fun environment for children ages 3-5.
