Kokum’s Early Enrichment Program is a program run by the Brandon Friendship Centre. It is a fully licenced provincially funded daycare program that provides full time spaces only, Monday to Friday, excluding stat holidays year round. We are a culture based Program that is focused on daily teachings by our elders.

TIMES AND  ACTIVITIES

Our program is not structured and follows the child’s needs for the day. The naps and lunch times seem to be consistent with the turtle’s. Play is the essential part of our program that is encouraged along with dramatic play. This is how our children learn all the cognitive domains through hands on experiences, and learn to communicate effectively.
