Public 3K and PreK: Demystified @ 12:00pm with Dana from Casa Parenting


Please join PSP and Dana from Casa Parenting for Public 3K and Pre-K: Demystified. This is a famously confusing process, and it does not have to be.

You will get a clear-eyed translation of the DOE's timelines and procedures plus the insight of an educational consultant, experienced educator and Brooklyn mom. Here are the topics that Dana will cover: 

  • How the match works and how to make a thoughtful application.

  • How the Pre-K process is the same and different from Kindergarten and what is important to know about Pre-K "strategy".

  • What to look for in a classroom.

  • The timeline and what Pre-K can mean for the future.

  • Different types of 3-K and Pre-K programs

  • Is 3-K really for all?

For parents of children with 2021 birthdays, this workshop will give you the final understanding of the Pre-K (2025-2026) application process.

For parents of children with 2022 birthdays, you will get an overview of the 3K application process and what are the implications of choosing a particular program for this stage.

While Dana won't be talking about specific schools, the information will be pertinent no matter what district you live in. 

From PSP Education Liaison Joyce Szuflita of NYCschoolhelp, who did these talks for many years: 

"I highly recommend Dana's webinars! She has years of experience as an early childhood educator as well as being a Brooklyn resident and mom. She is expert in counseling parents around schooling and parenting in general."

NOTE: This is a live webinar and will NOT be recorded.
