Sacred Child Program

The Sacred Child Program is a culturally-based program focusing on the holistic needs of children ages 0-6 years. Our goal is to recognize, enhance and celebrate the value and importance of the family and the roles of children. Our program consists of:

  • Positive Native Parenting for Caregivers
  • Parental Relief of 3 hours maximum
  • Effects of family violence on children who witness violence
  • Team building for children
  • Building positive self-esteem through arts & crafts
  • Developing greater listening and communication skills through storytelling
  • Social skills (being helpers, sharing, responsibilities, being safe)

The program is available on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9am - 5pm. We follow a calendar of teachings that are designed to enhance the lives of the children and families. Activities include medicine walks, drumming, regalia making, fun & games, ceremonies, feasts, visits from storytellers and Elders, and arts & crafts
