At Redwood Day we inspire students to embrace 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 and to feel safe and valued. And we want students to see, hear, support, and value others. 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, adoptive families, citizenship status, ethnicity, family structure, gender expression and identity, learning styles, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economics.
