What is a magnet school?
How can I prepare my preschooler for Kindergarten?
What are private schools REALLY looking for?
How will the preschool my child attends affect his/her chances of gaining admission to kindergarten?
If these are questions that you have ever asked yourself or other parents, then we have the answers for you. In this workshop, we will explore all of the things that you need to know about preparing yourself and your child for Kindergarten in the city of Chicago. We will also explore the various philosophies of preschools and how that choice can affect your child's ability to gain admission into kindergarten. We will cover the basics of the different types of public and private schools, their admissions and testing policies, and what you can do now to prepare your child.

Founded by four busy parents, UrbanSitter is an online resource where parents go to find & book babysitters recommended by people they know. Looking for the occasional sitter, full-time nanny, or last minute help? UrbanSitter will find available sitters—and show you the ones recommended by parents in your social circles (mother’s group, child's school, sports team, etc.). Search sitters by date & time, book jobs, and even pay online—it's quick, easy and efficient.
UrbanSitter is a community match service for parents and babysitters who connect online through Facebook and their existing networks. The site enables parents to search, book and review trusted sitters within minutes. Here’s how it works: Parents sign up for UrbanSitter using Facebook Connect and can view sitters known through friends or affiliations—including schools, sports teams and parents groups—and can view each sitter’s availability in order to select a sitter for a specific date and time, or plan an outing when they know their favorite sitter is available. Jobs or interviews can be booked in minutes and parents can contribute written reviews, ratings and Facebook “Likes” to sitter profiles.
