Ch’anik’na (pronounced cha-NEEK-nuh) is a Dena’ina word for children. The word, unique to our area, was specially chosen to represent our dedication in exploring and enriching all of our children’s various cultures, Alaskan and world-wide, and exploring the surroundings and culture of our Seldovia community. Ch’anik’na is open for children birth to age 10 for academic & cultural enrichment programs daily. A monthly calendar of events is provided to parents so that they may choose the activities in which they would like to participate. Weekly activities include going to the library, science time, hikes, arts and crafts, and music and movement time.
