Mission & Values
To create high quality, culturally relevant education for all children through the collaboration of early learning centers.
Anti-Bias Education Goals
While there isn't one "right" way to implement anti-bias education into a classroom, at SCCS, we use the Four Goals in Anti Bias Education as published by NAEYC.
GOAL 1: Identity
Teachers will nurture each child's construction of knowledgeable, confident, individual personal and social identities.
Children will demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride, and positive social identities.
GOAL 2: Diversity
Teachers will promote each child's comfortable, empathetic interaction with people from diverse backgrounds.
Children will express comfort and joy with human diversity, use accurate language for human differences, and form deep, caring connections across all dimensions of human diversity.
GOAL 3: Justice
Teachers will foster each child's capacity to critically identify bias and will nurture each child's empathy for the hurt bias causes.
Children will increasingly recognize unfairness (injustice), have language to describe unfaireness, and understand that unfairness hurts.
GOAL 4: Activism
Teachers will cultivate each child's ability and confidence to stand up for oneself and for others in the face of bias.
Children will demonstrate a sense of empowerment and the skills to act, with others or alone, against prejudice and/or discriminatory actions.
