Check out our cozy workshop, meet Mer- lyn, and ask any questions you have burning!" Caitlyn Pezza, Founder "When looking for a preschool, be sure you bring your child. It is so important to see them in the environment that they will spend so much time in. You want to make sure they feel as comfortable and at home as you do." Dana Cavanaugh, Director "Sensory Play Saturdays are a child-led exploration of typical materials used in the Millburn Co-op curriculum. They are a great way to visit our facility and meet our staff in a relaxed setting while your child has an hour and a half of mesmerizing fun." Eileen Gefell, Director & Teacher “Stepping on campus and seeing the school in action is the best way to decide whether a school is the right fit for you and your family. During on-campus tours and open houses, try to pic- ture yourself as a member of that community. Try to imagine you are walking the halls as a student, sharing stories and experiences with fellow classmates. Are you happy? Excited? Does it feel right?" Suzanne Kimm Lewis ’69, Director of Admissions OPEN HOUSE "We love parents and families who may be exploring supplementation for the first time so come with your questions about how supplementation and prep can support your child's learning." Alissa Gardenhire, Owner "Attending an open house is a personal experience. Every parent searching for a new school for their child is looking for many of the same things – great teachers, an exciting learning environment or rich artistic offerings. When attend- ing an open house, look for a school that delivers all of these things, one in which your child will flourish. Find the school that matches their passions and engages the whole child." Tina Underwood, Principal "It is always important to be sure the class environment is a right fit for your child. Look for a fun, relaxing program that en- courages your child’s creativity."
