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.

The 2018 Nunavik Childcare Centres Week was celebrated from June 4 to 8. The KRG Childcare Section would like to thank all residents who expressed their appreciation to childcare educators and staff in their communities. Educators and other childcare centre staff play a very important role in the lives of our children. They teach them, show them love and care for them.

The program is scheduled to take a little less than two years to complete with one week of training delivered every six weeks. Each one-week session will be organized in a different community. Successful participants at the end of the program will be granted a college-degree diploma.

The Management of Childcare Centres training program was developed by the CEGEP de Saint-Félicien with the support of many partners, including the Kativik Regional Government, the Kativik Ilisarniliriniq, the Cree Nation Government, and the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission.
