Garden Statement

Commitment to Action:

At The Garden Cooperative Nursery School, we strive to love, nurture and grow…but we cannot do so in a vacuum. We must commit to extending these core values to our neighborhood, our broader Los Angeles community and beyond, and support meaningful efforts towards equality and justice for all.

Black Lives Matter.

We reaffirm our school’s commitment to the following pro-diversity anti-bias pledge. In order to truly live up to this pledge, we know that there is reflection, listening, education and action we must engage in as individuals and as a community collective to be a part of the change we want to see. To that end, we are forming an advisory committee of current families, alumni families and other community activists interested in helping channel and organize our school’s efforts. If you would like to join this team, please reach out to us at
