CAP-C is one of three national programs that provide local services to improve the health and development of children; the others are the Canada Prenatal Nutritional Program (CPNP) and Aboriginal Head Start (AHS). These programs are governed by certain guiding principles, focusing on the philosophy of ‘children first’. They are community-based, committed to equity, accessibility, strengthening and supporting families, flexibility, and partnerships.
