If you are still looking for that perfect-fit preschool that's the right philosophy, near your house, that you can actually afford, you are not alone. Join hundreds of other East Bay parents for the one stop shop of the East Bay Preschool fair in Oakland. Preschools from both sides of the tunnel will be there along with other child-focused resources and destinations in the East Bay. Including us!
The 2016 fair is Saturday January 23, from 10am to 2pm hosted by East Bay Moms & Dads. More details on eastbaypreschoolfair.com.
Yes, its overwhelming. But, yes, it will give you a flavor of the many options available to you and you'll only need to park the car once. Children are welcome and will be swarming the place, but this event is for you.
What to expect: Each school or resource will have a table where representatives will be happy to answer any of your questions about the programs. If you're shy, just collect brochures. Make your way around the room to learn about all the options.
Admission is free.
This year, look for a kid stop with toys, books, face-painting, childcare and a family photographer
The East Bay Preschool Fair takes place at the Scottish Rite Center near Lake Merritt.
Look for us and say, “Hi.”
