In tiki light of recent events, we feel this innate drive to share the following photos from Le Petit Elephant (LPE) with you:
Do you see a common theme? The hues of our staff, students, parents, dolls, and book characters run the gamut of diversity.
The date on this blog post makes a few points:
(1) It’s only Monday…damnit.
(2) We live in the 21st century, not the 20th century
(3) To date, there are possibly a lot more Nazis alive in the U.S. than there were during World War II
These realizations have prompted us to reassure you that LPE accepts all people…except Nazis. It is against our belief in equality to include those who feel that they are an elite race based on the color of their skin, their religion, the amount of money in their bank account, their gender, or their sexuality. Our children are the best examples of love and acceptance. Their equal treatment of each other is shown in their play, dancing, nap times, music, cries, laughter, and all efforts of escaping TOGETHER. (Which to be honest, is why they keep getting caught. If a few just tried escaping, they would probably make it out…but don’t tell them this.)
Thank you again for your support of LPE, and for your loving children. The impact they have on us is big, but their impact on the world will be life changing when they become adults.
