What is The LOVIT Way? 

The LOVIT Way Program Evaluation Process (PEP)

is a self-assessment and monitoring instrument based on The LOVIT Way.


The LOVIT Way is a nurturing process of:

LEARNING about the AHS Principles & Guidelines 

OBSERVING and witnessing our programs

VALUING what we do for our children and families

INSPIRING our communities to plan what we want to do

TRANSFORMING our programs into the best they can be!

Aboriginal Head Start (AHS)

Aboriginal Head Start is an early intervention learning program for First Nations, Inuit and Métis children and families.

Aboriginal Head Start Association of BC is a leader in the development and delivery of professional training and cultural resources for AHS programs across Canada. Learn more at www.ahsabc.com
