A language nest is a language program for children from birth to five years old where they are immersed in their First Nations language. A language nest provides a safe, home-like environment for young children to interact with fluent speakers of the language. The goal of Language Nest is not to “teach” children the language, but rather to create an environment where language can be acquired naturally, as infants acquire their first language.
A language nest is not necessarily a daycare or preschool – it is a language immersion program.
Our mission is to teach the SENĆOŦEN language through kindness to community families and to provide a comfortable place to learn SENĆOŦEN for parents and children in a home-like environment.
