Tiny Trees has a strong foundation of anti-bias curriculum in our classrooms. We are now beginning anti-racism work. While it is necessary to name equity and inclusion as values, naming alone is not sufficient. Tiny Trees operates classrooms in some of King County’s most diverse neighborhoods, and yet we don’t see the same diversity in our classrooms or in our staff. We are committed to understanding and addressing this disconnect, and we are investing in organizational development that centers an anti-racism framework.
We are initiating this work in all parts of our organization, including creating an anti-racism team and integrating this work into our strategic work plan (we will share our plan once it is finished!). We will continue to update this page as we work to honor our commitment to equity, to listen to our community, and to hold ourselves accountable.

We operate programming on Puget Coast Salish land, home to Duwamish, Muckleshoot, Puyallup, Snoqualmie and Suquamish people. We are committed to continually learning ways to recognize and honor this land, its history and the people who have lived here since time immemorial. We understand that this acknowledgment is only meaningful when it involves authentic individual and collective work to repair harms by addressing our internalized racial oppression, understanding our involvement in systems of oppression, developing and sustaining equitable relationships, and maintaining continual learning and informed action.
