- Parent/child interaction and parenting skills
- Culture and language
- Special needs
The program operates 10 months of the year from September to June, with two groups of 15 children attending the program twice a week: one group of children from the east side of Siksika Nation, and the second group of children from the west side of Siksika. Classes run from 10:00am-2:00pm each day. Transportation is provided for the children to and from the Head Start building, and breakfast, lunch and snack are provided daily.
