Orchard Preschool Students Debut Meaningful Identity Work After Year-Long Study
Last Friday was a busy day for our preschool students. After performing in the annual Spring Sing event at 8 a.m., they met their families back in the classroom to premiere all the work they’ve done throughout the year around identity.
The study of identity is a major focus in all preschool classrooms at The Orchard School. Teachers believe that by having these important discussions about identity at such an early age, children will discover the true meaning of diversity, equity and inclusion. We believe this progressive education tenet is the key to make the world a better place.
Scroll through the pictures below to see how students created a special piece of work showcasing their identity. From identity boxes to tree guides and from interactive art stations to identity books, each classroom displayed their work in a gallery layout for families to observe and discuss with their child.
