All programming is based on the curriculum determined by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education and students receive the same high-quality education as other students in Northwest School Division.

Why should my child attend?
- Build a sense of belonging and identity through cultural experiences and land based education;
- Develop early Michif language literacy, numeracy and motor skills along side the English language;
- Build important skills in an inclusive play-based environment.
