Preschool Fair

Lamorinda Moms Annual Preschool Fair

For nearly 15 years, Lamorinda Moms has organized an annual preschool fair designed to help local parents find the perfect preschool for their child. This FREE event is open to Lamorinda Moms members as well as the general community. Representatives from more than 40 Lamorinda preschools are typically available to discuss their programs and answer questions. Children are welcome!

The 2013 Preschool Fair will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2013, 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Oakwood Athletic Club 4000 Mt. Diablo Blvd. Lafayette, California.

A directory of local preschools was distributed at the fair. You can download the 2012 Directory in PDF format here: 2012 Preschool Fair Directory.
