Early Education Fair, Newburyport

Choosing a daycare or school for your child can feel like an overwhelming task, but Newburyport Youth Services is making it easier for families with their upcoming annual Early Education Fair. Visit Newburyport Senior Center Thursday, November 18th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm to meet with over twenty early education schools and daycares from the surrounding areas, all in one place. The fair is free and open to the public. Please note the new location of the 2021 Early Education Fair is the Newburyport Senior Center.

Every family has different needs and priorities for their childcare, and researching your options can be incredibly time consuming… something all families can agree they are short on! The Early Education Fair, designed much like a college fair, gives parents the opportunity to move from table to table to learn about what each school or daycare has to offer. Teachers and representatives will be on hand to answer questions and offer information, ranging from flexible hours and costs to teaching techniques and philosophies, to help families select a school or daycare that matches their needs. Representatives from area Educational Foundations will also be available to answer questions about the local school districts.

Unsure of what exactly you’re looking for? The Newburyport Youth Services will be handing out folders with a suggested list of questions that parents may find helpful to ask the teachers and/or representatives from the schools.

The Newburyport Youth Services is a municipal department that provides quality programs, events and services for families with young children in the Greater Newburyport area.

Newburyport Youth Services absorbed The Greater Newburyport Families Club in the first half of 2021 and is committed to continue hosting key GNFC events that are truly important to our community. The Early Education Fair, running annually for over 20 years, expects a turnout of 50 to 100 parents. Come and socialize with other local families while planning your child’s future.
