Young families

Pulaarvik Kablu Friendship Centre offers a number of programs for young families or mothers-to-be. These programs help young mothers learn how to prepare nutritious meals for themselves and their families, using traditional country foods such as caribou and char. A preschool program for 4-year olds helps to better prepare the children for entering Kindergarten the following fall, while the “Reclaiming our Sinews” programs help them understand the principles of clothing construction using both fabrics and skins. IN each case, instruction is combined with opportunities for the young parents to discuss questions and concerns with the instructors.
