Our program is committed to multicultural education. This means we share a commitment to human's rights, dignity of the individual and social justice. We strive to create a program that truly reflects the lives of our children, families: We will make every effort to provide culturally responsive child care by affirming human differences and the right of people to make choices about their own lifestyle. We seek to recognize, appreciate, and respect the uniqueness of each child.
