At the Prospective Parent Meeting, Glenridge parents and the director will provide information about parent responsibilities, cost, and the developmentally appropriate curriculum. There will be a brief tour of each classroom and a question and answer period. The PPM is for PARENTS ONLY; please do not bring children. PPMs are held at the school, rain or shine. The program begins at 11:00 and ends at about 12:30. If your child was born on or before October 1, 2010 then sign up for a Prospective Parent Meeting.
