To our TLE Community,
While many of us are experiencing a myriad of feelings at this time of national crisis, I want to take a moment and reflect on the mission of our organization that we all need to remember:
To make a positive difference in the life of a child, their families, and the communities we serve.
This statement weighs heavier at this point in time than most and reminds us all of the great responsibility we have as caregivers and educators to our children – and all of our futures.
I want to speak directly to our TLE community at large. It pains me that we are living in a world where I have to state what should just be obvious, but it is the reality at this moment in time. To be clear, and I speak for myself as CEO and TLE as a whole:
We do not tolerate racism, discrimination, or violence of any kind against others. This is an organization that values equity and inclusion.
The work we do in our schools and the children in our care are a perfect example of love, compassion, and acceptance.
A child is not born with any preconceived beliefs regarding race, color or creed. The mere fact that we care for children from infancy and through their most formative years, puts a great responsibility on all of us. Our culture and our employees have an obligation to lead and teach respect to all human beings and to educate our children by being a role model in our communities. I have zero tolerance for anything less.
This is a family and we will continue to support each other through these difficult times and push forward together to create positive impact.
Chairman, Co-founder and CEO
