The College of Menominee Nation’s Sacred Little Ones project will develop an early childhood instruction model to enable Menominee children to gain academic skills, motivation, support, and confidence necessary to succeed in elementary education. CMN will research the academic achievement of participating children to validate the program results.
The program is being developed within existing infrastructure for program sustainability. The CMN project begun to build on CMN’s long-term robust partnerships and existing infrastructures with the Menominee Nation’ early childhood education institutions, Menominee Indian Head Start, Menominee Tribal School and Keshena Primary School at Menominee Indian School District. These partnerships during the four years of the project will create a sound path for program implementation and sustainability.
CMN is uniquely positioned to provide direction to our Menominee Nation on Early Childhood Education practices because of our offering both an Associate’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree with state of Wisconsin Teacher licensure in Early Childhood/Middle Childhood Education.
