Shoreline Cooperative Preschool Anti-Bias/Anti-Racism Policy:

We at Shoreline Cooperative Preschool recognize that biases for or against racial/ethnic backgrounds, culture, language, gender expression, sexual orientation, family structure, cognitive or physical ability, economic class, immigration status, and religion affect how every person (staff, parent, child) experience privilege and oppression. We are committed to broadening representation in classroom media (art, play, reading, and music), and continual self reflection and admission of bias with intention to grow and change for a more equitable learning environment. We also recognize that understanding, acknowledging and working to eliminate biases and oppression is a perpetual learning process for us all. Different people can be at different stages in the learning process, and as a community create opportunities for learning and assist each other in the learning process. We are dedicated to integrating ongoing ABAR education at all levels of the school community. We are committed, collectively and individually, to actively support community efforts to overcome oppression and establish justice.
