Anti-bias education has four core goals, each of which applies to children of all backgrounds and influences every area of our program. Together all four goals provide a safe, supportive learning community for all children.
Goal #1 Each child will demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride, and positive social identities.
Goal #2 Each child will express comfort and joy with human diversity; accurate language for human differences; and deep, caring human connections.
Goal #3 Each child will increasingly recognize unfairness, have language to describe unfairness, and understand that unfairness hurts.
Goal #4 Each child will demonstrate empowerment and the skills to act, with others or alone, against prejudice and/or discriminatory actions.
Based on the book, “Anti-Bias for Young Children and Ourselves” by Louise Derman-Sparks and Julie Olsen Edwards, Chapter one.
