Almost a year ago I sat down and thought long and hard about what I wanted to bring to parents on the Northshore and the answer was pretty simple–I wanted to make it easier to get access to information. At that time the idea for a Preschool Fair was born and I’m happy to say that it is going to become a reality next month! November 19th, from 6-8PM at the community center in Mandeville. We’ll have a number of speakers available to tell parents all about preschool. We’ll have representatives talking about programs and are funded and partially funded by the state for families that may qualify, we’ll have someone talking about special education options, a representative describing the Montessori theory, and more. We’ll also have light snacks and drinks. Children are welcome but we do not have child care provided.


We are working with local preschools to have representatives there as well. We have sent an email to every school we can think of and are now going around to each school to get them on board. Currently, these schools are participating in the event:

Cedarwood School

Christ Episcopal

Fundamentals of Mandeville Preschool

Northshore Home Education Center

Hosanna Christian Preschool

Kehoe France

Kinder Haus Montessori Preschool

Mary Queen of Peace

Northlake Christian School

Planet Kids
