Equity and Diversity Policy

Statement of Intent 
Bowen Island Montessori School (BIMS) welcomes diversity and actively works towards building a diverse, inclusive and bias free community. BIMS offers a learning environment that fosters peace and encourages the acknowledgement and value of different lived experiences. By promoting sensitivity to and celebration of difference among people, BIMS will foster the development of children's capacity for empathy, connection and personal responsibility. The Equity and Diversity Policy informs the foundation from which BIMS operates. It is the expectation that the Staff, BIMS community members, volunteers, and board members will reflect the values as stated above.
