Equity Statement: What We Believe
MIR is committed to creating an anti-bias learning community and to dismantling systems of racism and oppression. As a part of this vision, we strive to listen, learn, and respond by creating equitable values and practices. We will dedicate time and resources for continued staff learning. We will work in partnership with families to align our practices with our values and vision. We believe children should learn about the lives of others and see themselves in the curriculum and stories they hear. We aim to make Montessori in Redlands a welcoming, caring, and intentionally inclusive space.
We believe children have the capacity to create a more peaceful, just, and equitable future. Diversity makes us more resilient and strong, and we welcome you onto this journey with us.
