Please save the date for the 4th workshop in the "Parents for Parents" series by the RI Parents' Network: "Choosing a Kindergarten", on Sunday, November 1, 4-6pm.

This will be our annual free panel discussion with Roosevelt Island parents who have a recent experience with the process of choosing a Kindergarten for their child in NYC. Our panelists investigated different options, successfully placed their children in a variety of schools and programs including G&T and Charters, are active in parent advocacy and happy to share their knowledge. All participants are welcome to contribute to the discussion and ask questions. Our topics will cover public vs. private schools, prepping and testing, things to consider like commute and finances etc. Details to follow.
