Elder Involvement

Our programming is intended to address the wholistic development of our children and as such, Elders play a vital role in our programs. Elders may participate in the following areas:

Project Support – Elders provide guidance to the Parent Council, integrate the use of the sacred medicines and provide teachings, as well as provide input into curriculum development.

Program Delivery – Elders and Grandparents are invited attend training for the Nookimis / Mishomis and Mother Goose programs to enhance and implement new skills.

Classroom Involvement – Elders may be asked to facilitate and provide smudges, opening prayers, legends, and teachings. They may be asked to provide guidance where required as well as lead with songs and stories.
