Diversity & Equity Statement

Quality Start Los Angeles (QSLA) believes that all children deserve the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, nurturing, and caring environment where their differences are celebrated and their culture, family structure, language, racial identity, gender identity, abilities and disabilities, religious beliefs, and economic status are embraced.

To uphold this conviction, QSLA is committed to being a leader in the creation of an anti-racist early learning system that is diverse, inclusive, and reflective of individuals’ strengths. Across LA County and beyond, we stand with our communities of color and pledge to always advocate for equity, justice, and dignity for every child, parent/caregiver, and early childhood professional.

QSLA commits to working together with the communities we serve to be part of the solution so that educational and structural inequalities are no longer a reality for our children, parents/caregivers, and early childhood professionals, and every child and family has equitable opportunities to experience a happy, healthy childhood and a bright future.
