Anti-Racist Kids in 2020: How We Teach Little Kids About Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
There’s no doubt: We’re witnessing an historic movement for racial justice in our country. While parents of color have likely been talking about race with their families for some time, conversations about injustice and racism might be new to some white families. But now more than ever, it’s clear that we all need to teach our kids about racism and even more importantly, how to be an anti-racist.
- Citizenship—Everyone has value! In our classrooms, differences are honored, not feared.
- Advocacy—Stand up for others! We help children practice all the ways we can stand up, or speak out, on behalf of people within (and outside) our own community.
- Acceptance—Everyone’s welcome in our circle! Our positive classroom culture creates communities that are safe and welcoming spaces for all children and families. At KinderCare, everyone is respected and cared for.
