CLC is grounded in a fundamental belief that our schools, country and culture are stronger with race equity at its center. We are committed to taking action – individually and collectively – to stop systematic racism in our community.

CLC’s vision is Building a Just Future Where Every Child and Family Thrives Because of Early Childhood Education

At CLC, we believe that the best way to combat racial inequity is through the light of education.

We joined Stamford Stands Against Racism and are working to educate and empower our professional team to take new steps to foster and support racial equity. We are reviewing our curriculum and practices and exploring how we can better support children and partner with families.

We’ll continue to nurture an inclusive culture where staff, children, and families are all respected in a safe and diverse environment.

We must all work together to build a just future. Below are links to videos and resources that may be helpful to families as we work together to face and address the trauma racism creates.
