CHILDREN FIRST SOCIETY is still open to do our part to support the community.

Please wear a mask to protect our staff!

We remain open and are accepting applications from all families in the community. We offer services to children 7months to 12 years of age, using the COVID19 safety protocols Environmental Health has helped us develop. Email us if you need services or support for your young children.
We ask that only family members currently using our services and specified guests visit the Centre at this time. When we come out the other side of this we will have some exciting programs for everyone! Thank you everyone for your patience and helping the community get through this new challenge.

Taking Applications for our Scholarship Program.

Our Scholarship Program is now open for children 6-12 years of age.

The Children First Scholarship program is designed to support families who would not otherwise be able to access Early Learning and Care programs for their young child. Support is short term and dependent on funding availability.

The Children First Centre (CFC) is a childcare and education facility in Inuvik, NT.  We offer our services to children between the ages of 6 months to 12 year and strive to provide quality programs that meet the needs of all children. We believe that children learn by playing and exploring in an appropriate, stimulating, culturally relevant environment. Schedule a tour of the centre and see for yourself!

For more information view and download our Family Handbook.
