Program Director: Kathy Cardinal

Philosophy:

The Saddle Lake Early Childhood Center recognizes that each child is developing physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and creatively at his/her own pace, and that all of these areas are related to and dependant on one another and are of equal importance in the child’s development. The Center is committed to reflecting the Cree culture and traditions and ensuring that all children, including those with special needs, are nurtured in learning and developing essential skills, with opportunities to stimulate their natural curiosity and eagerness to learn.
