Early Learning

The early years (0-7) are a crucial time for learning and human development. Helping with, understanding, and supporting early learning and development has a positive impact on the overall well-being of First Nations children. Putting support systems in place early in children’s lives helps them grow and develop into strong capable human beings who can adapt and live in a society that is forever changing.IMG_6071

Our Early Learning program helps provide First Nations students with a strong foundation in their early years for optimal growth, development, and lifelong learning. We also promote parents as their children’s first teachers and assist families in supporting their children’s literacy development from birth, throughout the school years.

MFNERC has also developed resources to support early learning and development including the Manitoba First Nations Guide to Support Early LearningGrowing Indigenous Families Together; the Early Childhood Education Framework; and Welcome to School bags. We also host an Early Learning Conference every year in the winter. See photos of our most recent Early Learning Conference.
