The Sno-Valley Indoor Playground hosts its 14th annual Preschool Fair, 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday Jan. 20 at Si View Community Center in North Bend.

At this free event, parents can review more than 20 preschools and local family services from North Bend to Issaquah. They will have direct access to preschool teachers and directors, staff from enrichment programs, and a host of other services for children under 5 years of age. There will also be a showcase of Si View Metro Park’s community classes, activities to entertain attending children, and refreshments.

Sno-Valley Indoor Playground hosts the event to help parents navigate the road to kindergarten readiness.

“We realize that it takes a village to raise our children,” says Hilary Shemanski, SVIP President, “We consider this event our contribution in connecting parents with a face-to-face opportunity to find the right programs for their children.”

Many Valley preschools begin their enrollment period for the following school year in January. The fair is a great way for families to get all the information they need prior to making such an important decision for their children.

All participants can take home a free resource guide booklet, which provides contact information and detailed descriptions of all organizations registered at the fair, along with coupons from local businesses and lists of other resources for valley families with young children.

The Sno-Valley Indoor Playground is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization that offers community programs for families with children up to age 5, including an indoor play space run in the Si View Community Center in North Bend, the annual Preschool Fair, and a children’s safety fair each spring.
