What is a toy that will both educate and entertain? WLC will provide a gift concierge service, you let us know: price limit, the child’s age, gender and interests and we will curate a list.

Social Equity

Never before has social equity been more important. ALL schools are working on this topic with their faculty, administrators, alums, students and boards.  They are reading, talking exploring and really thinking about anti-bias curriculums and inclusivity. How a school succeeds will be one of many ways to differentiate themselves, but certainly one of the most critical areas.
