Waabogonee translated means; flower that wakes up in the morning and blossoms throughout the day.
Waabogonee EarlyON Child and Family Center provides environments that engage parents and caregivers as co-learners and leaders in influencing positive child, family and community experiences and outcomes.
Given that a sense of identity is the path to wellness, cultural elements are essential in the deliverable`s of the program, including access to land and water-based learning, cultural knowledge keepers, traditional songs, stories, crafts and foods, historical perspectives on raising children, parenting skills, and community development.
Waabogonee EarlyOn supports children and their families in learning, growing and deepening their connections. Children and families relationships grow stronger and more resilient through our strength-based and community empowered approaches.
