Creating a More Inclusive Culture.
We delight in creating valuable relationships with families and partnering with them in nurturing their child’s potential as an individual, as a family member, and as a member of society. We share in the responsibility to ensure that this potential is not undermined by systemic racism. We are committed to ensure our company culture is inclusive and all children, families, and employees feel a sense of belonging.
We are striving to create a better world with the continued goal to nurture a more diverse and inclusive generation of our young children where inclusion, acceptance, and belonging are recognized and practiced; where respect and fairness are the building blocks of our programs; and where each child and employee knows that when they are with us, they feel safe, respected, and valued. We must ensure that positive changes flow through every aspect of our work, including the way we teach our children. Together, we will do better.
At Kinderberry Hill, we are committed to sharing resources that can help us better educate ourselves on equity, diversity, and inclusion, so we can better support our children. We are all on this journey together. This list of books, videos, and other resources are meant to help you and your children as you develop your knowledge in equity, diversity, and inclusion.
