This year through the Post-Secondary Partnership Program grant Kayas has partnered with Blue Quills University to offer Early Learning and Child Care Level 2 certification. This child care training is vital to the long term health of Little Red River Cree Nation. The population is very young, creating a high need for day cares, head start programs and early schooling. There are many residents with their Level 1 certification, but almost none with their level 2 or level 3.
The program consists of a 12 week classroom program taught by visiting instructors from Blue Quills University, followed by a 12 week practicum working under supervision in daycares or schools. Children are the future of any community, and Kayas is proud to help bring greater child care to Little Red.
