Alike and Different
It’s completely natural for children to ask questions, and young children are particularly curious about differences – why another child’s skin is lighter/darker than their own or why some people speak another language. As children begin to notice differences, talk openly about them and encourage acceptance to help children develop appreciation and respect for others. Young children learn about differences through a two-step process. First, they must learn to recognize traits and customs that make them unique. Then, with guidance, children will learn to recognize and embrace what makes others special.
To help young children understand and embrace diversity, speak openly and honestly about differences between people. When your child notices differences, remind him or her that appearances have nothing to do with what’s on the inside. With guidance, your preschooler will grow into a kind, accepting person who understands that diversity makes the world a better place.

Fall Open Houses at New Garden Friends School
New Garden Friends School is the Triad’s only independent preschool through 12th grade school built upon the long-held standards of extraordinary Friends schools. Founded in 1971 with the goal of educating children from differing backgrounds together in a positive, affirming, and safe environment, the New Garden Friends School experience is defined by an experiential and hands on curriculum, weekly school-wide participation in service, and shared practices that reflect an emphasis on community and equality. Students are challenged to both see themselves as agents of change and to actively engage in the needs of the world around them.
