A documentary film is also being made about this innovative grassroots society that has developed an Inuktitut preschool based on a fusion of Montessori technique, with Inunnuinniq (Inuit child rearing) practices.

The Pirurvik Preschool has won major awards, and is now sharing its methods across Nunavut to daycares, preschools, and early years educators who have seen how successful their model has become for Inuit in Nunavut.
