Annual Preschool & Elementary School Fair

Held every fall, NPN’s Annual School Fair has been the No. 1 resource for school-searching parents for over 20 years!


Parents can chat with reps from more than 100 Chicago preschools and elementary schools and attend informative breakout sessions about Chicago schools. Past sessions have included CPS 101, which breaks down the admissions process, selective enrollment schools and more; and Preschool Primer, which covers such topics as preschool readiness and choosing a “best-fit” school.
