PIC Diversity Statement

PIC celebrates and values diversity and is committed to creating an environment where all families, teachers/staff, administrators and board members feel welcome. At PIC, we believe that children who are taught to appreciate diversity and who spend time in a diverse environment will both develop respect for and value the individual differences among us all and feel comfortable being themselves. All members of the PIC community are responsible for advancing an understanding of, and a respect for, diversity.
While acknowledging that diversity is ever-changing, PIC feels it is important to identify and recognize some of the ways in which diversity can be celebrated. The following is a non-exhaustive list developed in conjunction with a recent diversity survey completed by the PIC community: race, ethnicity, economic status, religion, language, gender, sexual orientation, family model, education level, abilities, learning differences and age.
