In 2017-2018, the Seattle Children’s PlayGarden partnered with King County Public Health’s Best Start for Kids Initiative to research the topic of inclusion of kids with disabilities in our community and share what we learned. Our goals are simple: to dismantle the stigma of disability and to help other organizations feel empowered to Say “Yes” to kids with disabilities in their programs and community spaces. We believe the time has come to create community-wide change and we are thankful that you are here on this journey with us.
Written by the PlayGarden's Executive Director and Preschool Teaching staff, this book walks readers through a beautiful school year in a fully inclusive nature-based preschool program at the Seattle Children's PlayGarden. It shows parents and educators how to meaningfully include children with (and without) disabilities in a whole year of nature-based curriculum.
Intended AudienceParents, early childhood educators, administrators and community members interested in learning how to support inclusive play-based programming for ALL children
Mi María: Surviving the Storm is a new oral history book that amplifies Puerto Ricans' first-person stories in the aftermath of Hurricane María, exploring how communities come together in the wake of disaster, how government neglect impacts recovery, and how precarity is exacerbated for those on the frontlines of the climate crisis. There are also corresponding free lesson plans available for educators to bring these narratives into the classroom and teach about the climate crisis, colonialism, representation, migration, disaster response, and more.
