OAK - LGBTQ+ Parent-Child Playdate | Children 0-5 years | 10AM-11:30AM
This event is offered in person only. Please register in advance to ensure we can accommodate you, as attendance is limited for safety reasons.
Parent-child playdates are now combined into one group!
We welcome parents and caregivers of children 0-5 years to our Friday morning parent-child playdate.
Join other LGBTQ-identified parents in this group for 2 hours weekly. Be in community with other LGBTQ caregivers and families, share resources, and interact with their children to support their psycho-social developments, parent-child bonds, and protective factors that help strengthen our families. Our playdates are held weekly in Oakland -- weekly SF playgroups will return in September! We will have facilitated circle time, snacks, free play, and community building.
This group will be facilitated by MITALI. Mitali (they/them) is a Trans* non-binary South Asian Bay Area based Early Childhood Educator and Post Partum and Family Doula. They have been building networks and co-horts of Queer & Trans families in the bay area for over a decade creating a network named GQVillage (a group for QT for families of color). From 2017-2020 they taught at Abundant Beginnings Freedom Forest School. Mitali used to enjoy Our Family Coalition Playgroups while on the OFC programs staff as well as bringing their co-horts of littles from their care space to attend. They are excited to take the facilitator chair at the Parent-child Interactives. Mitali is a 0-5 educator and specialist, and they coach families in Radical Mindful Child Rearing. They work in school settings as well as providing 1:1 Family counseling support.
