Non-Discrimination, Inclusion, and Diversity Statement
At CCS we work to create a diverse community of children, families, and staff. We believe that by developing meaningful relationships across lines of difference, we gain access to different models of learning, thinking, and being that can inform our identities and build bridges between us and others. Interactions with a wide range of people teach us that the world is an exciting place, rich with possibilities, in which we can be honored for our own unique qualities while celebrating the qualities of those who are different from us. We invite children, families, and educators to explore and engage our whole selves in a caring environment that welcomes complexity.
CCS works to create the most diverse learning community that we can. We endeavour to create a school that is accessible to all families who want their children to learn with us, regardless of race, income, or family structure. We endeavour to hire teachers of the highest quality who bring diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences to their teaching. We aim for our school community to reflect the diversity in our local community. We recognize diversity as one of many parts of our work toward social justice. Our commitment to this work is long-term; it is part of a larger, ongoing process towards building a better society.
