Belleville Beginners PreK » PreK Parent University

PreK Parent University

As part of providing our PreK students and families with comprehensive support, we will be offering a series of PreK Parent University Sessions throughout the course of the 2021-2022 school year. The sessions will cover a variety of topics that are relevant to students/families in our Early Childhood Education programs. Location and/or virtual platform for each session will be determined as each session approaches. Please see the schedule below for upcoming informational sessions throughout the course of the year. 

 

During each session, all participants will be entered in a Wheel of Names for a chance to win a prize!
