About Our Daycare

Henvey Inlet First Nation Daycare opened its door June 1999. It was an idea that took a few years to see completed and up to Ministry of Education standards. With humble hearts and sincerity of HIFN Daycare came to be a realization.

Through the 20 years that we have been here there have been many, many changes. In our leadership, guidelines, policies, government, staffing etc. But our one constance has been the community's children.

Throughout the years I have seen three generations come through our doors. And with each generation there has been change, for the better and a brighter future for our children, grandchildren, and future generations. But with the change: there has come with a lot of hard work, teamwork, and a lot of willingness to learn. About ourselves, our children, our community, and keep an open mind and understanding of the changes that come our way.
