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.  Parents share in the responsibility of leading one to two activities each semester.  These activities are meant to be fun and celebratory; often, parents will choose to plan field trips that align with our World Cultures units, which adds to the richness of our program. 

 

Through our World Cultures' activities, the kids learn about many different countries, cultures, foods, and traditions, while having key geographical concepts reinforced.  But we also learn about topics like civil disobedience and labor unions.  At the end of the year, all of our kids will have a world cultures and geography portfolio that they can continue to add to and enjoy!
