City Kids is an inclusive community; we welcome families of all cultures, beliefs, traditions, sexualities, and gender identities. In City Kids, we extend genuine love, respect, and friendship to all our families; it is our expectation that regardless of one's personal views that participants respect and follow our community standards.
We promote anti-racist, anti-bias, social justice education so that all of our children can feel good about themselves, and so that all of our students can grow up to be advocates for social justice.
We believe in teaching from the perspective of resistance; the accomplishments and resistance of people who fight for social justice should always be at the center of our teachings.
City Kids' program is secular. We encourage our families to share their cultures, but our curriculum is non-faith based.
City Kids is dedicated to creating a bully-free environment. A caring and supportive environment is important for students to feel safe, have fun, and learn.
Students need down time together when they are just hanging out and enjoying each other's company. We try to make time for the students to interact in a non-academic setting whenever possible.
