Emmanuel at Brighton Childcare Centre is committed to ensuring equal access and participation in our Centre and to our services for people with diverse abilities.
By identifying, removing and preventing barriers to accessibility in a timely manner, the Centre will strive to create and foster an inclusive environment that is considerate and accommodating for all individuals, that treats people with diverse abilities as equals, and that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence.
To that end, the Centre will strive to ensure that its policies, practices and procedures are consistent with the following core principles as outlined in the AODA:
Dignity: Services are provided in a manner that is respectful to persons with a disability and does not diminish the person’s importance.
Independence: Accommodating a person’s disability means respecting their right to do for themselves and to choose the way they wish to receive services.
Integration: Persons with disabilities can access all services. This may require alternative formats and flexible approaches. It means inclusiveness and full participation. This is a fundamental human right.
Equal Opportunity: Service is provided to persons with disabilities in a way that their opportunity to access services is equal to that given to others.
