We offer a variety of services including hosting two preschool programs that provide quality demonstration and learning sites, outreach, networking, research, resources, and training to support early childhood educators and the Indigenous children and families they serve.
The Indigenous Early Learning and Child Care (IELCC) Framework
BCACCS is proud to be the host agency for two Aboriginal Head Start Preschools in Vancouver's urban environment. These programs are for Aboriginal children ages 3-5 years old and follow the play-based philosophy.
BCACCS is the only Aboriginal Child Care Resource & Referral (ACCRR). We support early childhood educators and families in BC by providing information, outreach, resources, and learning opportunities.
Scholarship & Awards
Every year we hold the Perry Shawana and Child Care Recognition Awards and the Mary Thomas Memorial Scholarship to honour the hard work and dedication of individuals working with Indigenous children.
