The 2019 Peacocktail Party
Partners for Early Learning exploring important topics
At our 5th annual Peacocktail Party, Peacock Family Services will once again bring together a community of voices in support of developmental strategies for working with children of all ages. We will gather for an hour of cocktails and conversations before transitioning into the theater for a chance to discuss important topics in education.
Beyond the Single Story
Join us at this year’s Peacocktail Party where Déana Scipio, PhD will help us explore how children’s books can and should demonstrate equity, diversity, and inclusion. Dr Scipio will discuss how books help children view, at an early age, not only how diverse the world is, but how they fit into it.
Parents and educators will learn about how to recognize biases in books, and to choose (or help kids choose) books that normalize – and foster dialogue about – differences such as race and ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, family structure, and more.
We are excited about the rich conversations that Dr Scipio’s presentation will spark among the evening’s participants.
Join the discussion on
Friday, October 25, 2019
6 pm – 9 pm
at Rolling Bay Hall, Bainbridge Island, WA
Tickets are available for purchase online soon, at our office, at 305 Madison Ave N, Ste C.
This is a 21+ only event.
Serving during the evening will be Fig & Spice.
Fig & Spice aims to use all natural and organic ingredients, including – but not limited to – all proteins, fruits, and vegetables. Obviously, it costs more, but the difference in the quality of the finished product is apparent, and is a practice I follow in my own household. Shopping for organic and natural products is a balance between trying to purchase locally sourced items and finding the best price base for what are normally much higher-priced ingredients. As such, you will not find heirloom tomato salad offered on a menu in December – or blood oranges served at a summer event!
