City Kids' Principles

Seneca and clouds.jpg

City Kids is an inclusive community; we welcome families of all cultures,

beliefs, traditions, sexual orientations, 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 abide

by our anti-bias, anti-racist principles.

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 marginalized people 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 secular.

 

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.
