Parents and caregivers of children 0-5 years are invited to join the Friday morning parent-child playdate.
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. These playdates are held weekly in Oakland. There will be facilitated circle time, snacks, free play, and community building.
Please register in advance to ensure Our Family Coalition can accommodate you, as attendance is limited for safety reasons. Meet at Lake Merritt playground between Rotary Nature Center and Lake Merritt Labryinth off of Bellevue Avenue, Oakland, CA 94610
