World Cultures & Geography
Our World Cultures & Geography program is the heart of our anti-racist and anti-bias philosophy and curriculum. We believe that when children understand themselves as part of a global community, they build a deep understanding of what it means to be a kind and compassionate person, to have respect for all people, and to understand that what we do in our part of the world is connected to people all over the globe.
Our cohesive, ninth-month program is broken down into units according to regions of the world or theme. Parents share in the responsibility of leading one to two activities each semester. Some of our lessons are fun and celebratory while others are focused on serious topics such as civil rights; often, parents will choose to plan field trips that align with our World Cultures units, which adds to the richness of our program.
Becuase of Covid-19, these classes will be held outside during warm weather and online during inclement weather. Classes/activities held outside will require all participants to wear masks and to stay at least six feet apart.
