Our Commitment to Equity

In line with Wildflower’s equity principle, it is important for us to understand the backgrounds of the families we seek to serve.

We use this information in aggregate to open new Wildflower schools in underserved communities, raise money to support schools and reflect on our progress to serve a diverse community.

Please share as openly as you are comfortable, for the home that the child spends the majority of their time in. Thank you.
