Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Multiculturalism

Building a better culture together

At Kids’ Care Club, we see ourselves as your partner in your child’s development. We want them to develop the best version of themselves, not just physically and academically, but emotionally as well!

That is why our child development centers are a place where every child can explore who they are and what makes them unique. Your child’s classroom is a safe space where they learn to celebrate both the differences and similarities between our families and cultures throughout the year. When children learn to accept themselves, coupled with nurturing their voice and agency, they can pass on that feeling of love to others.

“Supporting diversity in early childhood programs is a two-pronged process: helping children to feel good about themselves, their families, and their communities, and also exposing children to differences, things that are unfamiliar, and experiences beyond their immediate lives.”

Francis Wardle, Ph.D.

We embrace the community as the foundation of our school. Throughout the year we have opportunities for all of our families to come into the classroom and teach the children about their culture and their history. This Intercultural approach not only brings lessons and stories to life, but shows the children the faces of our community and the world, while teaching them to celebrate our differences.

KCC supports you on your journey to foster a socially conscious human, and we understand conversations around race can be difficult, no matter how often you have them. Infants at three months of age can start to recognize physical differences, and when children notice differences related to race, it is something they often aren’t shy about voicing. Therefore, we believe it’s important to have age appropriate conversations early and often. 

At KCC, books with racially diverse characters are a strong and seamless place that we start. Seeing heroes and main characters that are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC) expands empathy, cultivates compassion, and drives hopes and dreams for all children. Representation matters.

We are always happy to share resources with you and if you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know. We’ll listen.
