Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
The opportunity is to have 2 elders in for up to 4 hours a day working closely with the children and staff for language support. The challenge is to break that point of not using english on the floor. Especially when we are a secluded reserve and we have speech/language/occupational therapists who come in weekly but they wait for time when we are finished our language. Sometimes our times mesh and we work with their schedules as well.
Challenges: 
Elders can't stay a lot of times due to age and fatigue.
