|MISSION & VISION STATEMENT|
The Biigtigong Nishnaabeg Children and Family Learning Centre program will strive to provide children, parents and caregivers with opportunities to develop holistically as spiritual, mental and physical beings, in a safe friendly environment reflective of the cultural and beliefs of the community that will support the healthy, holistic development of Native children in the child care setting.
The Biigtigong Nishnaabeg Children and Family Learning Centre Program will ensure that all children have an opportunity to develop socially, mentally, physically and spiritually. These skills will be fostered through a curriculum that addresses culture and language, health promotion, nutrition, social support, education and parent involvement, and will be used as tool for successful integration of our children into the school system.
