Parents have until March 4th to register their kids for kindergarten in the New York City schools. Here on the Lower East Side, the process is at least a little bit bewildering because there are no zoned schools — parents choose where they prefer to enroll their children. The Educational Alliance is holding a special information session Wednesday morning to help parents navigate the system. Representatives from District 1’s five public kindergartens as well as from the Community Education Council will be on hand to offer guidance. The event takes place at 930am. It will be held at the Educational Alliance’s main building, 197 East Broadway. Questions? Email: email@example.com
And while we’re at it, we’d like to let you know about the debut of our KIds Page. It’s being compiled by LES mom Bridget Bosworth. For starters, she’ll be posting a weekly list of free and low-cost events for families. And on Mondays we’ll be featuring her “kids pick” of the week. We’re really happy to have Bridget on the team!
