Redwood City’s Annual Preschool Preview Night
A Preschool/Child Care & Parent Resource Fair ~
Redwood City, CA - January 18, 2005
- 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, Bay Area Parent Magazine, and the Redwood City Mother’s Club are teaming up to give parents the information necessary to help them make the best decisions possible. The community is invited to the 10th 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 Thursday, February 3, 2005 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at the Veterans Memorial Senior Center, 1455 Madison 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 Quality Preschool and Child Care.” General information on the Preschool Preview Night is available by calling 650-780-7311.
