A Review of Indigenous Early Learning and Child Care Centre Frameworks for the Nshwaasnangong Child Care and Family Centre in the City of London, Canada

The Nshwaasnangong Child Care and Family Centre in partnership with Western University and CityStudio London provide an internship opportunity for a Western University graduate student to research, what the tensions and debates are when establishing an early learning and child care framework from an Indigenous perspective. Specifically, the intern will complete: 1) a literature review with descriptive annotated bibliography focusing on research concerning early learning and child care frameworks and ,Indigenous perspectives and such frameworks, 2) an inventory of Indigenous early learning and child care centres across Canada and their framework reports, and 3) report recommendations for the development of Nshwaasnangong Child Care and Family Centre’s early learning and child care framework. The research will be completed by searching, screening, and reviewing academic articles, reports, policy documents, and Indigenous early learning and child care outcomes frameworks across Canada and more broadly the United States, Australia, and New Zealand.
