At The Morningside Preschool of Performing Arts, diversity is a positive aspect of our lives and an essential aspect of education.
We recognize and respect the fact that diversity exists in the languages we speak, the colors of our skin, our genders, ages, and sexual orientations, the traditions we observe, the configurations of our families, the financial and educational resources in our families and the special needs we may have.
We believe that our separate heritages, beliefs, and choices of expression help to define us as individuals and that our commitment to learning about one another and the larger world unites us as a community. Differences of all kinds are acknowledged and explored with respect.
Diversity Mission Statement
The Morningside Preschool of Performing Arts believes that healthy identity development is essential to the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students. As educators, we must create an environment in which all students feel safe, challenged, celebrated, and an integral part of The M School. It is our responsibility to engage all members of our school community in understanding multiple perspectives and participating in anti-bias work. Ultimately, our goal is to prepare students to become contributing members of a multicultural and interconnected society.
