“It was amazing seeing so many schools in one place. I used the zip code map on the event program to find and focus on the schools within my area. It was fast and efficient."
“My little one had a great time with the activities offered by some of the extracurricular organizations participating in the preschool fair. And I liked finding out how many different types of preschool options are available in our community!
“Eye-opening experience! You really get a full understanding of the myriad of school and extracurricular activities offered in our area."
“I was able to speak with all of the schools on my list as well as discover some that I hadn’t heard of before. Talking to the school reps solidified my choice on where to apply. I also liked that kids were encouraged to come since it isn’t always possible to find childcare."
