Our Commitment to Equity
We at Wildflower Schools believe that embracing equity is an essential part of being a Montessori educator, and that embracing equity impacts how you interact with your students and their families. As stated in our equity principle, we are working to create diverse, inclusive learning environments that work for justice as the foundation of peace.
Though we are but seedlings in our own growth of being intentionally equitable in our teaching practice, it is a development we are proud of and are eager to share with you. We invite you to join us as we think about what it means to engage in what Dr. Montessori calls, “the preparation of self” in the context of today’s racially unjust and segregated communities.
Embracing Equity offers mindful actions towards racial healing, community-building, and peace beyond the rose and into the roots. The 2017-2018 pilot program will be the first of its kind in Montessori education to explicitly address equity across schools and geographic boundaries. In a total of five cohort meetings from August – March, we will delve deeply into a self-exploration with the support of a community.
