Many of the moms in our moms club have children that are preschool age, and some that will be ready for preschool in the very near future. Many conversations consisted of recommendations and questions about certain schools as we all tried to pick eachothers' brains for information. "Why couldn't this process be easier?" several of us asked.
Well, why can't it? From here the idea of a preschool fair was born. Instead of opening the phone book or questioning Dr. Google for the first preschools that popped up, the schools could be brought to parents! Parents can browse each school and from there set up more in depth interviews with the ones that seemed to fit their child(ren) well. Parents can even register that day! In one day you can complete the amount of work that would normally have taken weeks.
The 2nd Annual Preschool Fair will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church on Saturday March 16, 2013 from 10am to 1pm. Preschools will be organized by town and each school will come equipped with important information. Some will even offer free registration and other goodies! Browse each table or use our layout map to organize your plan of attack. The MOMs Club hopes that by the end of the day you will have a much better idea of where you would like to send your child(ren) for preschool.
This is a free event and children are welcome, but we do ask that they are supervised at all times.
Representatives from the MOMs Club of Springfield, other local MOMs Club chapters, will be present. Stop by and see what we're all about!
