Early Years’ Parent Council

You may join the OICC Early Years’ Parent Council, if you are a parent of a child (or children) enrolled in an OICC Early Years’ (EY) program: Sivummut Head Start or Tumiralaat Child Care, and can volunteer 2 hours every 2 months.

  • To provide advice and input into how to further incorporate the six components into EY programming;
  • To support and advise the EY Manager in program development and evaluation;
  • To participate in the hiring process of EY staff;
  • To promote the inclusion of culture and language in EY’s programs;
