The Challenges We Face
Preschools, child care centers and other early learning providers can unknowingly perpetuate systems of oppression and anti-Blackness, which can cause harm to the children we love.
Organizations who do not actively build anti-racist early learning environments may unknowingly perpetuate unconscious bias, unconscious anti-Blackness and systemic racism, which can result in:
Putting BIPOC children on the preschool to prison pipeline.
Creating environments where children of color are marginalized and isolated by their peers.
Not meeting the needs of all your children by engaging in less eye contact, less verbal interactions and disregarding the pain of BIPOC children.
We Are Here to Help!
