like the grasses showing tender faces to each other; This we should."

HIFN Daycare provides social support & educational services to our First Nation children, youth and their families. The indigenous pedagogical plan is primarily based on the Ojibwa culture & language while respecting & supporting all participating children's language & cultures. HIFN Daycare believes that: It is our desire that we and you should be as one heart, one mind, and one body, thus becoming one people, entertaining a mutual love and regard for each other, to be preserved firm and entire, not only between you and us, but between your children and our children, to all succeeding generations.
