Gender is an element of identity that children are eager to explore and understand. Our classrooms are gender-inclusive, bias- and binary-challenging communities. We actively confront traditional gender roles and harmful stereotypes that so powerfully affect our children. We are an open community that invites all conversation, planned and spontaneous with children, parents and staff. We accept any and all gender expression and encourage exploring identity.
Gender Inclusive Curriculum
A gender inclusive curriculum at our school focuses on staff best-practice training, institutional diversity policies, instructional guidelines and vetting of classroom materials, and the examination of interpersonal relationships. All should feel welcome and comfortable in our community. We examine, teach and model the concept and practice of consent beginning with our youngest children.
