The Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe broke ground Wednesday on a  building for its early education department.

The 47,600-square-foot building, which will be located adjacent to the District I Community Center in Onamia, will accommodate approximately 200 students ages newborn to 5 years old.

The new building reflects the growing demand for the Band’s Head Start and Early Head Start programs, which integrate Ojibwe language and cultural instruction into standard curriculum. The program currently serves 117 students in District I, with 70 children on the waiting list.
