What parents are saying:
My wife and I found the presentation so helpful. You did an impressive job, synthesizing the info, simplifying it, and making it engaging too! Not easy. – Heidi T.-W. – Downtown Brooklyn parent
“I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic session yesterday. You helped distill what can be a very anxiety-filled process into the key takeaways parents need to know. Even though our daughter has only just turned 2, I’m very glad we’re now prepared with all of this info. I’ll be sure to recommend you to other parents in the neighborhood.” – Caroline Z. – DUMBO, Brooklyn parent
“Your presentation was so informative and interesting last night. I now have a few more schools on my list to tour.” Rachel A. – Brooklyn Heights parent
“I found the presentation to be extremely informative and helpful. Thank you for organizing it and these guides.” Greg M. – DUMBO, Brooklyn parent
“Your knowledge on Brooklyn schools is very impressive and you laid it out in an easy to follow format. It definitely provided clarity on a “mysterious” process. I’ll recommend your session to others in my building with young kids.” Agaja R. – Downtown Brooklyn parent
“It was a really good introduction to the application process, different options with regards to pre-k and kindergarten, and school overview. For me, one of the best parts was your insider take on each of the schools.” Saul L. – DUMBO parent
“The balance of Q&A and information you gave us was excellent and we covered so much in 2 hours. You did this in a relaxed setting – I was bracing myself for an intense environment of crazy Brooklyn parents and it was the total opposite. The session has had a direct impact on my choices for my son, so I’m very grateful for that.” Olly J. – Downtown Brooklyn parent
“Super informative and exactly what we were hoping for! This was the best overview and introduction I’ve heard, you made a complex and daunting landscape appear much more navigable and open. We are a British couple with 3 young kids, 2 born in BK, and it was great to know that the whole scenario really is as maddeningly different from back home in Europe as we thought – it’s not just us! – but also that you can find a way through it all and stay sane.” Toby S. – DUMBO Parent
