Kackaamin employs Family Support Workers, and Certified Therapists that facilitate educational workshops that broaden the knowledge of our adult clientele on a variety of topics and issues. There is weekly individual, couple, and family counselling available along with community capacity building support sessions.
The educational workshops cover a variety of topics such as:
The children and youth have a great staff including a SD70 teacher, a cultural support worker, and additional support workers. We ask that your children bring all English and Mathematics material from their respective schools.
The Learning Centre’s approach consists of many elements all rooted in the “Virtues project” wherein your child’s inner talents and strengths are named and developed throughout the session.
Your children will have the opportunity to connect with our staff to learn about communication, triggers, Residential Schools, boundaries, grief and loss and ceremonies relating to, as well as lateral kindness, and self-care. They will also have weekend access to visit our Child and Youth Clinical Play Therapist.
Our Toddler Centre Daycare is a nurturing and safe place for newborns and toddlers up to the age of five. The children participate in a variety of play activities that have therapeutic and gentle teachings such as aboriginal drumming and art therapy. We recognize that our toddlers will one day be our elders and we nurture any talents that they possess and welcome what they each have to show us about themselves.
