Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
Creating a Language Nest within our newly constructed daycare will provide a culturally rich environment for our young children and increase fluency of the Nuu-chah-nulth language, create strong inter-generational connections and increase and maintain cultural connections for children in care.
Challenges: 
A challenge we might encounter is using only one dialect when our organization is open to all Nations in Canada.
