The Red Lake Nation Head Start serves 160 children on the reservation. We have three sites. One is located in the Early Childhood Center, one is located in Ponemah, and Immersion classrooms are located in the new Red Lake Nation College.
Our Mission is:
To demonstrate a commitment to young children and their families to assure they have resources and opportunities to succeed.
This is accomplished in a positive learning environment in which they can be creative as well as develop a sense of cultural identity. Our staff will promote the development of academic, social, emotional, and physical skills.
In addition to the Head Start mission statement, the Immersion site: Waasabiik Ojibemotaadiwin has adopted the following mission statement:
We will create a positive multi-generational learning environment for children to become leaders and proficient speakers of the Ojibwe language where they develop a positive self-identity grounded in our language, culture and traditions, teaching skills and awareness to be able to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing world.
