Redwood City, CA - January 22, 2004
- 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. Redwood City
and Bay Area Parent Magazine are teaming up to give parents
the information necessary to help them make the best decisions
Redwood City’s Parks, Recreation & Community Services
Department and Bay Area Parent Magazine have scheduled their
9th annual “Preschool Preview Night,” a preschool
/ child care & parent resource faire that has become a
key resource for parents considering their child’s early
care and education.
This open house event will be held on Tuesday, February 10,
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.” General information on the Preschool
Preview Night is available by calling 650-780-7311.
