Stay informed about the fair by following our dedicated preschool fair Facebook page.

The preschool directory provides an alphabetical list of local schools, their addresses, phone numbers, schedules, and other pertinent information. You can also use the preschool directory search to filter schools by zip code, schedule, type (such as co-op and other attributes), or keyword.
