We're OPEN!!

Covid-19 protocols and safety measures have been modified for a small group of children and staff members- we are excited to announce we have opened our language nest once again. 

The Program

Chief Atahm Language Nest is a full immersion program in Secwepemctsin (Shuswap Language) for children ages 6mo-4yrs. Located on the Adams Lake Reserve in Chase BC. The program has been running since 2001, with great success!


"Our Vision is to provide an enriching environment that nurtures our young children and their caregivers to be secure and confident individuals who are fluent speakers of Secwepemctsin."

Learning through Play

We offer "one of a kind" atmosphere in a home-like environment. 

Healthy Snacks And Lunch Provided

We offer healthy snacks and daily nutritious meals

Homemade meals made with organic ingredients and fresh veggies and fruits. 


We believe in learning through free-play and self directed learning.

Our staff love to play! We specialize in lego, singing REALLY loud, and car races. Thankfully, the children also love to play.  



We offer a comfortable place to sleep. Both babies and toddlers have separate areas within the nest to create a peaceful sleep environment during nap time.   

Nature Walks

Daily Outings

Every day at nest is an adventure! We love to explore our beautiful land with the children before nap time.
