Sno-Valley Indoor Playground organizers say between new Common Core curriculum requirements and the State of Washington’s prediction of increased K-12 enrollment over the next decade, it’s more important than ever to ensure young children are prepared for kindergarten.
And that’s just want they trying to do at the 7th annual Snoqualmie Valley Preschool Fair.
To help local parents navigate kindergarten readiness, the 2015 Snoqualmie Valley Preschool Education and
Enrichment Fair will be held on Saturday, January 24, 2015 from 9AM to Noon in the Mt. Si High School Commons.
The fair, hosted by the Sno-Valley Indoor Playground, is free and open to the public. Many area preschools begin open-enrollment in late January, so the event is timed perfectly for families as they make that early-education decision for their young children.
“Our Preschool Fair is an incredible opportunity for local organizations that cater to preschool-aged children to
showcase their individual programs,” said Heather Morris Tuip, President of the Sno-Valley Indoor Playground.
Parents who attend the Fair will have direct, hands-on access to teachers, directors of day care facilities, staff
from enrichment programs – and a host of other services for children under five years of age.
The Preschool Fair offers a ‘one-stop-shopping’ experience for local parents. Tuip explained, “More than thirty Preschools and local businesses will present their services to attendees. We provide kid-friendly activities and demonstrations to entertain little ones while their parents speak with vendors.”
Fair attendees will also receive a free Resource Guide, which details the organizations registered at the Fair,
provides coupons from local businesses and lists information on local parks and other Valley resources for
