Eagles Nest, Clearwater

Eagles Nest is a multi-age child care program licensed through BC Interior Health. We look after children aged birth to five years. "Multi-age' means we can care for children aged 0-5 years in one room rather than splitting them into groups according to their age. Sibling and family groups can remain together and children of all ages benefit from the opportunity to learn from and share with children both older and younger than themselves.

At Eagles Nest we know that all children and families are Brigette web1.JPGmade differently and we see the strengths and good things in each person. Eagles Nest is a setting where we view the life and education of children in a holistic way. In order to bring meaningful content to our program we honour and respect cultural traditions and values and encourage the participation of family and Elders.

The medicine wheel forms the basis of our curriculum, influenced by web 2.JPGhe seasons. Much attention is given to spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual development. Relationship to the earth is our starting point and a great deal of our time is spent outside connecting to the land and our ancestors. Here are some daily cultural activities our children take part in; smudging and other ceremonies, language teaching, storytelling, crafts, drumming, traditional songs, cooking, giving thanks, fishing, hunting, trapping and food gathering and preparing.

Children are provided with three nutricious meals per day.
