Play Frontier subscribes to the principles and laws of the state of Washington and the federal government pertaining to civil rights and equal opportunity, including applicable Executive Orders. Play Frontier policy prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, religion, marital status, physical, mental or other sensory disability, genetic information or status as a veteran, in the recruitment, admission, and retention of students; the recruitment, employment, and retention of staff and volunteers; and the operation of all Play Frontier programs, activities, and services.

Frontier Center for Child Development will provide reasonable accommodation to children with disabilities in accordance with Washington and federal law. Frontier strives to be a truly inclusive setting, where every child has the opportunity to learn. When a child with special needs enrolls at Frontier, we will work with local special educators to assess and provide services, in conjunction with family members, teachers, and other professionals to provide an individualized educational experience.
Play Frontier provides access, equal opportunity, and reasonable accommodation in its service, activities, programs, education, and employment for individuals with disabilities in accordance with Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. We support your right to make a complaint should you believe that your child has been denied access in the form of appropriate accommodations or that your child has experienced discriminatory treatment as described in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). Please discuss any concerns with the Director, who will assist you in resolving concerns by facilitating communication with staff or volunteers.
Play Frontier does not espouse or promote any religious beliefs. In order to respect the individual beliefs of all families in our program, Play Frontier does not observe formal religious holidays. However, it is important to us that children see themselves reflected in their classroom. When children wish to, we will gladly acknowledge their cultural or religious practices in an appropriate context for early learning, with a goal of teaching acceptance and tolerance of many beliefs.
We also believe that staff should see themselves reflected in their own workplace. We equally acknowledge the Caregivers’ cultural and religious practices in an appropriate context.
