Redwood City's Annual "Preschool Preview Night":
A Preschool/Child Care & Parent Resource Fair
Annual fair highlighting various early care and education programs from Belmont to Palo Alto has become key annual resource for parents making important child care decisions
Redwood City, Calif. - The community is invited to Redwood City's annual "Preschool Preview Night," a preschool/child care & parent resource fair that has become a key resource for parents considering their child's early care and education. This free, informative open house event will be held on Wednesday, January 22, 2014, from 6 - 8 pm, at the Community Activities Building, 1400 Roosevelt Avenue in Redwood City. Parents can also take in a special presentation on "Choosing Quality Preschool and Child Care," courtesy of the Child Care Coordinating Council, at 5:30pm or 6:30pm.
Parents can drop in to see displays and obtain information from a variety of early care and education programs in the mid-peninsula region (Belmont to Palo Alto). Representatives from these programs will be available to talk with parents about their organizations and to help determine which programs might be the best "fit" for kids. Parents' questions about family child care homes, State licensing, in-home care, quality indicators, accreditation, and more can be answered, giving them the tools necessary to help them make informed decisions about their child's care and educational development.
"Choosing the right child care, preschool, or other early-development program is one of the most important and often difficult decisions a parent can make," states Kristen Anderson, Child Care Coordinator of Redwood City's Parks Recreation and Community Services Department. "Redwood City and its Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department, the Redwood City Mother's Club, and Bay Area Parent Magazine are teaming up to give parents the information necessary to help them make the best decisions possible."
General information on the Preschool Preview Night is available by calling 650.780.7311 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
