Redwood City & Bay Area Parent Magazine Schedule Preschool Preview Night for Parents

Redwood City, CA - January 23, 2003 - Choosing the right child care, preschool, or other early-development program is one of the most important, and perhaps difficult, decisions a parent can make. Redwood City and Bay Area Parent Magazine are teaming up to give parents the information necessary to help them make the best decisions possible. Redwood City's Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department and Bay Area Parent Magazine have scheduled their 8th annual "Preschool Preview Night," as a key resource for parents considering their child's early care and education.

This open house event will be held on Tuesday, February 11, from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Community Activities Building, 1400 Roosevelt Avenue, in Redwood City.

Parents are invited to drop in and see displays and obtain information from a variety of early care and education programs, from Belmont through Palo Alto, and representatives from these programs will be available to talk with parents about their organizations. 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 and intelligent decisions about their child's care and educational development. In addition, the Child Care Coordinating Council will present a mini-workshop from 7:00-7:45 on "Choosing Child Care and Preschool."

The Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department provides recreational facilities and activities for all ages and interests, and supplies building and custodial services for City buildings. Redwood City Parks also operates the Fair Oaks Community Center, providing social, educational, and cultural activities, as well as information, referral, and counseling services to persons living in Redwood City and neighboring communities.
