New ‘what we stand for’ statement
“Our preschool strives to be inclusive, diverse, and compassionate toward all. We are committed to creating a space where every child and family is valued for their unique contributions to the classroom community and can see themselves represented in their learning environment. Our work is ongoing and we are constantly evaluating how to further incorporate anti-bias education standards into our program’s existing policies and practices. By supporting our children’s developing sense of self and by placing a curricular focus on relationship skills such as empathy and cooperation, we hope to empower them to become advocates for themselves, their community, and the world around them.”
Our current diversity & inclusion project is our SCP library overhaul!
This summer we took a hard look at who is represented in our preschool library. Thank you to SCP member Meredith Scherrer for going through, screening, and 'scoring' every book we own! Our teachers are excited to update our library with books that better represent our community. A generous donation from an alumni member allowed us to purchase over 30 new books, but we need many more in order to bring some balance to our preschool library!
