- Increase your awareness of the full spectrum of gender identity/expression;
- Learn how to support gender-inclusivity in our homes, schools and communities; and
- Ask all the questions you’ve wanted to ask – in a safe environment. What do all the acronyms mean? How do I talk to my child about children or adults who look/act different? What does it mean if my son likes to wear dresses or daughter prefers tractors?

Time: 10 a.m. to Noon (complimentary lunch and discussion to follow)
Cost: Suggested Donation $5-$15
Location: MLK F.A.M.E. Community Center

Welcome to the Rainier Valley Cooperative Preschool learning community; we hope to have the opportunity to get to know both your child and your family.
We believe that preschool is a place where the children get to be who they are and where they are, and receive support and encouragement to continue on their path of becoming themselves. It is our hope that our families and teachers will create, together, an environment that will foster compassion, self-awareness and community. Above all, it is our goal to meet your child where s/he is and work with his or her interests and ideas to facilitate a class that is engaging, exciting and welcoming for all the students.
