Our Mission

Our Mission...

To organize, promote and manage an annual event that raises funds to support improvements and operations of Little Angels Childcare Academy.

A reliable childcare and learning environment for our children is imperative in such a dynamic community of Naknek that grows in population from 600 (winter) to 20,000+ (summer).    We work hard year round to support the largest wild fishery in the world and in this chaotic environment, we have committed to provide a consistent and reliable academy for our children.  Bristol Bay Fish Expo is developed to annually raise funds for the Little Angels Academy.  

Our Successful First Year...

In 2016 we began plans to create Little Angels Childcare Academy in an effort to make quality childcare available and affordable for local families. In searching for a sustainability plan for this program, we turned to our amazing wild salmon resource for an annual fundraiser. Proceeds from the 1st Annual Bristol Bay Fish Expo went directly to Little Angels Childcare Academy. This, along with a donation from the Bristol Bay Borough and generous support from the community and fishing industry enabled us to open our door in October 2017. 

Our Vision Beyond...

Bristol Bay Expo (our annual fundraiser) is critical to support of Little Angels Childcare Academy.   With your support in 2018, we will be completing our official certifications, as well as, recruitment of a professional Program Manager.    Our community of Naknek (600) supports the 10's of thousands of visitors who annually make their way to work in the largest wild fisheries harvest in the world.  Supporting the Bristol Bay Expo accomplishes for our community a safe, nurturing, consistent environment for our children.
