|Mission||The Wuneechanunk Shinnecock Preschool provides young children with opportunities to achieve their full, unique potential through comprehensive, culturally sensitive, early childhood care and education, planned and implemented in partnership with families and the community.|
The Wuneechanunk Shinnecock Preschool is a private not for profit 501©(3) organization. Wuneechanunk Shinnecock Preschool is pronounced (woo-knee-chŭ -nunk) (shin-knee-cock). The English translation is Our Children of the Stony Shores Preschool. The school is owned and operated by the Shinnecock Indian Nation and is located on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, near Southampton, New York.
In 2006, recognizing the inherent connection between the early education of our children and our movement towards cultural preservation and economic self-sufficiency, the Nation embarked upon an initiative to develop and construct an early learning childcare and education facility. Since that time the Nation has been working diligently to secure funding for construction and long term operations.
The Wuneechanunk Shinnecock Preschool currently serves infants and toddlers, ages 18 to 36 months, and offers families affordable, full day early childhood care and education.
