ADA and Discrimination Policy

Kids’ Safari Learning Center does NOT discriminate on the basis of age, race, cultural ethnicity, color of skin, gender, gender identity, handicap, socioeconomic status or sexual orientation of prospective or enrolled child(ren) or family in regard to admission, benefit of enrollment, or termination provisions except as to meet requirements for age limitations specified by state licensing.

Kids’ Safari does not discriminate against persons with disabilities on the sole basis of a disability; that is, we provide children and parents with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in our programs and services unless the child’s presence would pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others and/or require a fundamental alteration of our program. We make every effort to provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services needed for effective communication with all children and/or adults with disabilities.

Kids’ Safari is a program that celebrates diversity and maintains a commitment to individual and group success and accomplishment. We are committed to the growth and development of all children. Kids’ Safari does not discriminate on the basis of ability. We believe and value the principles set forth in the American Disabilities Act and will pursue all reasonable accommodations to preserve a positive and comprehensive learning environment for all.

Kids’ Safari strives to create a balanced environment that best suits the needs of all children. It is our anticipation that all children will benefit from a program that values and recognizes the importance of individuality, as well as human similarities. Curriculum and the learning experience will be evaluated and modified to provide success and accomplishment for the abilities and developmental levels of individual children.

Success of an inclusive environment is dependent upon the willingness, acceptance, and cooperation of all parents, children and staff. To uphold the commitment of an educational and supportive program that encompasses such diversity, it is imperative that relations between families and staff are open and encouraging. It is our intention that parents, children, and staff receive the educational and supporting resources that are required to fully implement the curriculum and fundamental nature of this program.

Advocating, communicating and educating is the nucleus for success to develop and maintain an environment that enriches and enhances the lives of our children, families, staff and community.
