As a community, we work together to make the world a more just and inclusive place for everyone.
At Redwood Day, we inspire students to embrace and honor differences and develop the emotional courage to respect and appreciate the diversity within our community and beyond. Through engaging in our program, we want every student to be seen and heard, feel safe and valued, and experience belonging. We want students to see, hear, support, and value others while fostering active allyship. Redwood Day embeds cultural competence, equity and inclusivity, and social justice throughout our curriculum and programming for students and adults.
We view diversity broadly, and much of our curriculum and programming reflects this in developmentally appropriate ways, focusing on topics such as ability, age, appearance, family structure, gender identity and expression, language, nationality, race/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic circumstance. Redwood Day’s diversity philosophy also informs our admissions and hiring practices.
