Preschool Fair

The Orange County, N.C. area has a wide variety of preschool and “morning-out” options, including Montessori-, Waldorf-, and Reggio Emilia-based programs; parent cooperatives; church-based; and language-centered programs. Demand is high and spaces fill quickly. Because many programs have long waiting lists, we recommend you begin investigating your options early. Many programs have application deadlines in January or February of the year you wish your child to begin.

To help parents learn more, the Chapel Hill/Carrboro Mothers Club hosts a preschool fair each year, open both to club members and to the general public. We invite all the local preschool programs that we are aware of. School representatives are available to hand out brochures and application materials and to answer questions. The Mothers Club distributes a free booklet containing a profile of each school. These profiles also appear on our website. The Mothers Club does not endorse any of these schools; it hosts the fair solely to inform parents about the available options.


The fair on Saturday January 23rd, 2016 has been postponed due to inclement weather .

The Fair will now be held at the same time, 11am-1pm at the same venue, Carrboro Century Center, 100 North Greensboro Street on Saturday, January 30th, 2016.
