Teleclass: Kindergarten Admissions and ERBs: It’s Never Too Early to Get Ahead

4-18-13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

NYC PEAS (Private Education Advisory Service), authors of the well-known The NYC Private School Admissions Handbook,will be offering a free teleclass on the ongoing school admissions process for Kindergarten.

During this informative teleclass, NYC PEAS will:

  • Advise families on what they could be doing now and over the summer to get ready for applying to schools.
  • Discuss the differences between traditional, progressive, single-sex and religious schools.
  • Discuss what to look for in a school when you go visit.
  • Discuss the application process including how to obtain applications.
  • Provide useful tips for essay writing and interviews
  • Discuss the ERBs (Standardized testing). To prep or not to prep.
  • We will end with a question and answer session.

This teleclass is generously sponsored by NY Kids ClubThe NY Kids Club Early Enrichment Center offers preschool programs for children 2, 3 and 4 years old. All programs incorporate classroom time for art, music, math, science and literacy activities, and gym time, where children participate in gymnastics and sports classes in our state-of-the-art gymnasium, which features soft play mats, tunnels, a balance beam, uneven and parallel bars, trampoline, and more. Instilling a sense of love for school and learning is at the heart of the NY Kids Club Enrichment Center. Children develop a sense of autonomy, a sense of independence, self-esteem, curiosity and ability to ask questions, and the confidence to generate ideas. Admission for NY Kids Club preschool programs is on a rolling basis, and registration is now being accepted for the three new locations – Tribeca, Park Slope, and Williamsburg – scheduled for opening this summer.  Limited spaces are still available at the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Gramercy Park, Battery Park, and Brooklyn Heights locations.
