Maajiigin is an Ojibwe land-based childcare partnering with families to build a teaching and learning community dedicated to speaking Ojibwe and carrying it out into the community. Our dedication to Ojibwe ways and language drives our decisions.
We provide child care for infants and toddlers ages 6 weeks to 3 years.
Our families are at the center of our work. We recognize that our families are critical in order for us to be successful in building community, creating opportunity for Ojibwe language and culture, intergenerational transmission of Anishinaabe lifeways and the delivery of land-based childcare. We see our families as community leaders who, in partnership with our staff and community knowledge holders, will make significant contributions to our language revitalization efforts in Leech Lake. They help broaden our language and culture revitalization efforts beyond school settings, into the community and beyond.
