Mna Bmaadzijig (formerly Latchkey) and Daycare Programs
The Mna Bmaadzijig Program provides supervision of children in addition to the Beausoleil Day Care Program. We cater to the needs of children aged 44 months to 12 years who attend Christian Island Elementary School. We provide a safe and positive learning environment that is family oriented and enables children to interact with different age groups. We also give them opportunities to learn about their culture and language, and develop gross motor skills, independent thinking and decision making processes.
