The Response Pono Received at the Columbia University’s Early Childhood Fair was Great

Pono was invited by Columbia University’s Office of School and Child Care Search Service to participate in the Annual Early Childhood and Child Care Fair, which took place this past Tuesday, September 30th, at Columbia University Morningside Campus – Lerner Hall, Roone Arledge Auditorium, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.

The response Pono received at the Fair was great. Many parents of young children as well as expectant parents stopped by the Pono table to hear about the Pono approach and principles. Most of them signed up to our mailing list and a couple even filled out initial admissions forms on the spot. Some of the representatives from other schools also stopped by, either to introduce themselves and their schools, to admire the children’s work featured on our table, or to let us know that our table was the best!

The Fair was co-hosted by Columbia University Office of Work/Life School and Child Care Search Service and Office of Government and Community Affairs. Special thanks to Carolyn Singer for organizing this great event. We will be back next year!
