Notes

Here at Buddy Pegs, we want all of our kiddos, families and staff to feel valued, appreciated, and free to be who they are. The Buddy Pegs space and culture is designed to prevent discrimination against our people and community regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes them unique. We believe identifying ourselves as a safe space is vital amidst the challenges society faces today, as it signifies an environment where all feels supported to bring their whole selves to work or play.
