    Family Gatherings are EarlyON Child and Family programs based on cultural needs providing parents/caregivers and children with programming that reflect the Haudenosaunee culture and incorporate Mohawk and Cayuga languages.

    Family Gatherings are respectful and nurturing environments for children, families and caregivers to interact with opportunities to build positive relationships through belonging, well-being, and engagement and incorporating Haudenosaunee culture, languages and awareness.
