At Moncton Headstart, “All kids deserve a Headstart.”

We are committed to providing evidence-based, trauma-informed, high-quality early childhood and family intervention support services to at-risk children and their families.  Early childhood intervention combined with targeted parenting programs can make an indispensable contribution to a child’s well-being, ultimately giving children the best chance to thrive.

Our Gala promises to be a memorable event, and we are hopeful we will raise enough funds to purchase a much-needed new bus in the coming year.
