If your little one is just about ready for pre-school, you don’t want to miss the upcoming Cocktails and Conversation: Parent to Parent Pre-School Information Swap. This event will showcase the area’s pre-k offerings on Wednesday, November 18 from 8:00 – 9:30pm at Fitzgerald’s 1928 in Glen Ridge.
According to event organizer Rebecca Keszkowski, “It’s great that the Montclair area has so many pre-school options, but trying to gather all of their details can get overwhelming.” She adds, “Many parents simply don’t have access to all of the available information.” And that’s why she decided to produce this event and offer information on the area’s pre-schools all under one roof.
The evening will be structured much like a career fair. Each school will have their own area so parents can move freely from one school to the next without sitting through a series of long presentations. Also, each area will be ‘hosted’ by a mix of parents from the school as well as a school representative so attendees will glean specific school info (like age requirements and program overviews) in addition to parent/child experiences. As of now, 12 pre-k’s are signed up to attend, but Keszkowski is still actively booking more schools. The majority of the schools are in or right around Montclair, with the furthest located in West Orange.
There is no charge to attend the event and appetizers will be served. A cash bar will also be available. Click to reserve your ticket.
Keszkowski’s vision is to host a series of Cocktails and Conversation events like this one for different educational needs. Next up on her list are daycares and private schools. Stay tuned!
