Métis Early Learning & Child Care


We are committed to the well-being of children and their families. Therefore, IWS, in partnership with the MMF - Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Department, is creating a Métis ELCC Strategy that will improve ELCC for Métis women, their children and their families.

The “Manitoba Métis Women-Centred ELCC Quality Improvement Project” will outline a Métis Women-centered governance model that supports Métis-led ELCC decision making and defines a high-quality and inclusive Métis childcare model. It will build and improve partnerships with MMF communities across Manitoba to develop culturally appropriate home-based child care initiatives and provide leadership and management training to Métis women working in the Métis ELCC field.

IWS will support the provision of quality, licensed, play-based, Métis-specific ELCC programs for children (12 weeks to 12 years of age) through Licensed Child Care Centres. IWS is creating, renovating, and building “Little Infinity Child Care Centres” across Manitoba.
