What We Do

We support Indigenous communities to develop high quality, culturally respectful, spiritually enriching community child care services that are based in the child’s culture, language and history. We have built a community of practice by sharing knowledge and through collaboration. We undertake research, develop training, provide services and leadership, and create resources that support communities to develop their own programs.

We know that child care strengthens Indigenous children and families and is an essential building block for the social fabric of our communities. We know that in order for child care services to be impactful they must sustainably funded, determined by community, and accountable. We know that our children have a right to high quality child care services that are Indigenous-led, culturally appropriate, affordable, and reflect community needs. The work we do every day helps ensure that Indigenous children and families have access to the programs they need.
