Childcare Management Meeting

A total of 24 childcare centre directors, KRG Childcare Section staff and an accountant with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton attended an annual management meeting in Kuujjuaq on January 20–21, 2020. Among the important topics covered were planning of a second edition of the community-based Management of Childcare Centres training program (scheduled to start on March 9), the regional human resource and insurance policies for childcare centres, as well as the new annual leave trip benefits program for childcare staff in all the communities.

These amazing ladies, along with many more individuals at every childcare centre in every community, are making Nunavik’s childcare network a real success.

Very First Graduates of Childcare Management Training

On June 29, 2019, 15 participants received attestations of college studies in Management of Childcare Centres. The graduates included eight childcare centre management employees and seven KRG Childcare Section staff members. The new college program was launched by the KRG Childcare Section in February 2018 in close cooperation with the CEGEP Saint-Félicien. The community-based training program is designed to teach participants more about communications, leadership, the role of managers, and how to better express Inuit culture in a childcare centre setting. The program was delivered in several one-week sessions over a 17-month period.
