The Parents Education League of LA (PEL) is excited to host its Spring Preschool Fair on Sunday, April 22 from 1pm to 4pm at Leo Baeck Temple, 1300 N. Sepulveda Boulevard, Los Angeles, 90049.
The Preschool Fair is a wonderful opportunity for families to get information about many different preschool programs, all in one place. Teachers and Directors will be on hand answering questions about their specific schools as well as talking about more general topics such as learning philosophies; so, whether a parent needs guidance regarding a half-day or full-day program or has questions about academics or Kindergarten readiness, there is no better opportunity in LA than the Preschool Fair to hear it straight from the Directors themselves.
At Fairs past, there have been over 70 participating preschools and 300 to 400 families in attendance. Pre-registration at www.parentseducationleague.org is highly recommended.
This is truly an important and unique event that families with young children should not miss.
The Parents Education League of LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing current, comprehensive and objective information regarding schools and education in Los Angeles via its website, workshops, events, fairs, speakers, and publications.
