Little Métis Sing With Me

Little Métis Sing with Me (LMSWM) is a Métis family literacy, parent-child program, created by the Louis Riel Institute. The program incorporates family literacy, Métis history, culture and, essential skills at a family level. The families attending LMSWM celebrate Métis history and culture through rhymes, songs, books, music, dance, food, crafts, and more.

Family Literacy programs (FLP) have been shown to have many positive impacts on families and communities. The early language, positive social interaction, and bonding with family, all help to increase school readiness as children reach Grade 1. School readiness looks at not only academic readiness, but social, emotional, mental, and physical readiness. Many FLP's are run out of family centres in schools and schools report an increase in parent involvement with the school and a reduction in child anxiety upon entering Kindergarten.

LMSWM has been run in Winnipeg Libraries, Head Starts, School Family Centres, MMF Regions, MCLD, and through the St. Malo Local for 10 years.
