Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are preparing daughter Zaya Wade for her next chapter!

The retired basketball star, 42, and the actress, 51, accompanied Zaya, 16, on a tour of the University of Washington in Seattle, and Dwyane documented the visit with a sweet Instagram post.

The trio walked around campus, enjoying some of the greenery, architecture and study spaces the college has to offer, photos and videos shared by Dwyane show.

In one shot, he and Zaya smile together under an umbrella — in UW purple! — and in another, the teen poses between tables and shelves in the college’s famous Suzzallo Library.

Videos the proud dad shared show him and Union smiling as a tour guide speaks, and Zaya wandering with Union beneath some of the blossoming cherry trees that canopy the campus’ quad.

In the caption of the post, the NBA alum could not contain his excitement, writing, “We’re in the College Visits season!!!”

Dwyane also posted some additional shots on his Instagram Story, including a picture of the library’s intricate ceiling and a snap from another Seattle tourist spot he visited: Pike Place Market.

Wherever Zaya ends up applying, the teen’s résumé is stacked. A model, influencer and LGBTQ+ activist, she made her runway debut and appeared on her first magazine cover last March.

And she receives lots of support from both Wade (who was sure to receive the "first signed copy" of her DAZED issue) and Union, whom the NBA star married in 2014.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Dwyane — who had Zaya and her older brother Zaire, 22, with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches — said he strives to show Zaya “unconditional love.”

“I don’t want to just be one of those people who’s just been given to Zaya and she doesn’t feel open and confident in me,” he told PEOPLE. “I want to show her what unconditional love looks like so she can use me as this sounding board through life.”

“I feel like it’s shown in Zaya,” he added of the teen, who came out as transgender in 2020 at age 12. “It’s shown in Zaya through the world because of her being a part of the trans community.”
