It is our responsibility to create opportunities for language revitalization in our community.
We have the responsibility to learn and speak Ojibwe, while holding space where Ojibwe is learned and spoken.
We are responsible to develop avenues for our families to become advocates for their children, our language, and our nation.
We focus on wellness for our children, our families, our staff and our community, understanding that wellness is supported by strong Ojibwe identities and understanding of self.
We create access to language and cultural knowledge and understanding. Our families and staff will be confident in their understanding of how to conduct themselves in the Ojibwe community.
We are guided by Ojibwe practices in our approach to child care and community.
Our understanding of Ojibwe child care practices requires that we build relationships with each and with our natural environment.
It is our belief that each of us has a gift and we are responsible to each other to strengthen our own gifts and to build environments where each child’s gifts develop and are valued.
We are building a community wherein each member has a role to play and is valued for their gifts.
We seek partnership with our families, staff and knowledgeable community members to build a space where Ojibwe language and lifeways thrive.
