Dear Parents/Guardians of M’Chigeeng First Nation
Our summer programming is coming to a close on August 29, 2023 and we are planning and preparing for our projected 2023 fall enrollment. Please contact Binoojiinh Gamgoonhs at 705-377- 5383 to confirm re-enrollment, new registrations, or to place your child on a wait list for one of our early learning programs:

  • Infants: under 18 months of age/parents must be working or in school to be eligible
  • Toddlers: 18 – 30 months of age
  • Preschoolers: 30 months to 6 years
  • School Age – Before and after school care: Junior Kindergarten age – 13 years of
    age/parents must be working or in school to be eligible.

M’Chigeeng First Nation Band Members will be given priority for childcare services; however, if space allows, a non-band member will be offered the childcare services at a minimal fee. In the event a M’Chigeeng Band Member requires the space being occupied by the non-member, the non­member will be given a two-week notice for termination of services to secure/find alternative childcare.
In two parent households, both parents must be working or in school to qualify for full day services. Hours of care will be based upon your work or school hours. Documentation confirming employment/schooling may be requested at the time of enrollment. Parents or guardians who are self-employed or participating in training or correspondence courses will be evaluated on a case-by­case basis to determine eligibility of admission and the type of care required. Socialization hours, from 9:00 – 3:00 P.M., are available for Toddler and Preschool programs if space is available.
For children that are referred – if one parent/guardian is at home, then the child(ren) will be eligible for part-time care, 9:00 – 3:00 P.M. If both parents/guardians are working or in school, (beyond
3:00 P.M.) then the child(ren) will be eligible for full time care. Referrals are those from KINA Gbezhgomi, M’Chigeeng Child and Family Services, M’Chigeeng Binoojiinh Gamgoonhs Child and Family Support Program and/or other related community agencies.
We look forward to welcoming all our past, present and new children and families back for a fun filled year of early leaning.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Centre.
