Part IV: Tribal Child Care – The Salish Kootenai College Learning Center

This event has passed.

Accessibility, affordability, and trust are three of the key factors for families when determining their child care arrangement. For American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) parents, a legacy of injustices, lack of trust, and the desire for intentional learning of cultures also affects these choices. So, how is formal child care (a child care center, family child care home, or preschool) located on a reservation different? And why?

Part four of BPC’s series on AI/AN Early Childhood programming will highlight one center – the Salish Kootenai College Tribal Child Care Center in Pablo, Montana – and show how this center is not only providing high quality care, but how they are also continuing traditions and passing down native culture to the next generation.
