Mommybites and NYC PEAS Present

4-Part Small-Group Tele-class Program for Parents:
Understanding the Application and Acceptance Process
Of  Private Nursery Schools in New York City

Program Description

This unique program, Understanding the Application and Acceptance Process for Private Schools in New York City, exclusively hosted by Mommybites, is designed to offer parents a practical and real-time guide to the admissions and acceptance process of private schools.

The program is facilitated by NYC PEAS,  nationally-recognized as one of Manhattan’s top, private-school admissions experts. In this program NYC PEAS and Mommybites will facilitate small groups of parents via the convenience and privacy of a tele-class format to learn, discuss and strategize what is needed and expected in the application process.

Please note: This program guides you though this often difficult, overwhelming and stressful process, but participation in this program DOES NOT guarantee that your child will be accepted to your applied school(s).

Program Overview

To ensure participants receive personal attention, enrollment is limited. The program comprises of four (4) weekly teleclass sessions of an hour (60 minutes) each (detailed below). In the first part of each session NYC PEAS shares their extensive knowledge and experience; in the second part of each session NYC PEAS addresses questions and issues raised by the group.  All participation is on a first-name only basis. Each parent decides whether to share any personal information in the group sessions. For convenience, attendees can call in from any phone.
