Strengthening children, families, and communities.
Commitment to Diversity
Wilde Kingdom ELC is committed to serving a diverse population of children and families, and to providing a multi-cultural, inclusive curriculum. Our classrooms reflect a diversity of racial and cultural backgrounds, gender roles and special needs and abilities through the use of pictures, books, puzzles,dolls and dramatic play materials. We promote various cultures through art and music education that include materials, art work, songs and instruments.We encourage families to share native customs, music, clothing, books, games, and foods with their child’s group.
Children with Disabilities
Children with mental or physical disabilities have the opportunity to participate in all activities at the center. We believe all children benefit when children with and without disabilities are educated in the same environment. We believe this creates a sense of inclusiveness, increased tolerance of others, and understanding human differences.
Wilde Kingdom ELC will make any reasonable modification in policies, practices and procedures in order to accommodate individuals with disabilities.
Non-Discriminatory Policy Wilde Kingdom does not discriminate for reason of race, creed, color, gender,religion, disability, national and ethnic origin in its admissions, educational programs and activities.
