What is Aboriginal Head Start On-Reserve (AHSOR)?

AHSOR is a program that supports activities focused on early childhood learning and development for First Nations children from birth to age six and their families. The goal is to support programming that is designed and delivered by First Nations communities to meet their unique needs and priorities.

Why is Aboriginal Head Start On-Reserve​ ​Important?

• Since early life is c​ritical to lifelong health, programs focus on early childhood development, in a culturally appropriate manner, to support the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical growth of a child.
• It supports and encourages children to enjoy life-long learning.
• It supports parents, guardians and extended family members as the primary teachers.
• It encourage parents and the broader First Nations community to play a role in planning, implementing and evaluating the AHSOR program.
• It builds partnerships with other community programs and services to enhance the program’s effectiveness.
• It encourages the best use of community resources for children, parents, families and communities.
