A project of CENTRO CULTURAL CHICANO
Please help us achieve our goal of providing education for at least 2 Siembra Pre-School students.
Siembra Montessori is a licensed, full-day dual-language and bicultural preschool program. This model program is committed to providing the highest quality educational opportunities for each child so that they are ready to excel in kindergarten. Through authentic implementation of the Montessori methodology, Siembra Montessori prepares children and parents for sustained academic achievement.
Siembra partners with families to achieve goals
Siembra families access Centro’s support services, which include parent education, seminars, family therapy services, health and wellness classes, and a culturally appropriate food shelf. We also engage 88% of student parents in monthly parent education workshops, family field trips, a monthly parent volunteer group, and parent-teacher conferences. Latino children, parents, grandparents and guardians actively advocate for education of children in our community.
Siembra partners with Montessori Training Center of Minnesota, (MTCM)
Montessori for All initiative allows Centro’s teachers to continue to learn state-of-the-art practices. Partnering organizations help each other to effectively use Montessori methods for children from different ethnic, economic and social backgrounds. Together, we increase educational success of children in Minnesota.
Centro and Siembra Montessori are committed to creating high quality early childhood education by providing scholarships to 93% of our Siembra Montessori students (52% of our Siembra students live in households at or below 100% of the 2012 federal poverty rate and 30% live bet ween 100 and 200% of the federal poverty).
Our children are succeeding with 70% of our graduates testing 90% or higher in social, cognitive, language/literacy, and physical development.
