OUR POLICIES

OUR POLICIES

Safety First

You matter to us. We believe in you and we believe in that natural curiosity of children. We emphasize the importance of due diligence and safety. We work to co-create an environment with caregivers, learners and communities that is safe and free of physical or emotional harm. Our materials are inclusive of different learning styles, languages, religions, genders and socio-economic backgrounds. SEED recognizes that place-based learning through play is not without risks. We urge all caregivers to remain vigilant during SEED lessons to mitigate any risks that could come from your immediate environment. SEED is not responsible for injuries, accidents, or damages that may occur during SEED lessons. 

  

Environmental Impact

We prioritize developing connections between our learners, caregivers and communities. When we think about community, we think of a relationship between people and the land. We recognize that our headquarters are on the traditional land of the Wendat, Haudeno-saunee and the Anishinaabe peoples. We observe that this is treaty land of the Williams Treaties First Nations and other Indigenous people.

We honour your people, your knowledge, your stories and your work as Stewarts of this land. We commit to listening to and learning from the indigenous people of the land we live and work on. And do our best to follow their example of how to be caretakers for our local environment. 

To support our environment, we are making strides toward neutralizing our carbon imprint. We're not perfect, and it is not easy, but it is an important goal of ours. We direct 2% of our annual sales toward indigenous reforestation projects.

We are currently searching for a connection to indigenous reforestation projects in Canada and Indonesia.  If you are interested in working with us, please contact us.

 

Children’s Rights & Privacy 

SEED puts children first. All materials that children directly interact with will always be ad free. We respect children’s right to privacy. It is our policy not to share any private information about your child without explicit permission from you, the parents/guardian.
