Diversity is not how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another’s uniqueness.Ola Joseph
At ELC, we celebrate individuality and difference. We recognise that there is no universal childhood, and far from trying to dissolve or overcome difference, we aspire to a sense of unity in which difference is integrated. We build mutual respect for the particularities that make each one of us unique, which helps children grow together in empathy and sows interconnection and interdependence. Drawing strength from acknowledging and honouring our different identities, we can nurture a community that strives to critically engage with the issues, problems, and perspectives that affect us all, and emboldens the children’s sense of belonging to a common humanity with shared values and responsibilities.
