Parents looking to learn more about what Pasadena preschools have to offer are invited to take part in the Pasadena Preschool Fair on Saturday, which will be held this year in an online format in two sessions due to the ongoing pandemic.
The online event is scheduled for 11 a.m., according to organizer Priscilla Hernandez.
The Pasadena Preschool Fair has become “kind of a tradition in the city of Pasadena now for new parents to become familiar with early education options that are available to them within the city,” Hernandez said.
The upcoming first portion of the two-part series will focus on general issues surrounding preschool, especially amid social distancing guidelines, she explained.
The Pasadena Public Health Department will provide an update on the pandemic as it pertains to preschool, organizers said. Representatives from several preschools including public, independent and co-op schools , and officials will provide more general information for parents.
The second part of the event was scheduled to be held online on Oct. 24 and will include a series of “breakout sessions” for parents to talk with representatives of several dozen local preschools.
“So that enables the parents to go and individually talk to the schools that they’re looking at,” Hernandez said. “What we’re, what we’re aiming to do for the community is to make them aware of what is available and all different types of options, private and public.”
“It enables parents to be able to make the best decision and have a much more comprehensive perspective on things,” she said.
“You know your child best and what the Pasadena Preschool Fair strives to do is to provide you with all the resources and information that we can in making that decision, Hernandez added.
