Along with involving our families in the program on many levels, we also understand the importance of supporting the many diverse needs of our families. Sensitivity to cultural diversity is evident in how we communicate with children, celebrate holidays, accommodate family requests, and make every attempt to minimize bias and support inclusion. We follow the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) Code of Ethical Conduct and adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act – both providing a framework for thinking about diversity, inclusion, and fairness. We do not discriminate on the basis of gender, ability, ethnicity, family characteristics, culture, or beliefs.
Curriculum is accessible to all, regardless of cultural or developmental differences if reasonable accommodations can be made. We also provide translators for families whenever possible to overcome language barriers. The program provides parents with a variety of connections to community services and resources including professional, social and recreational.
