Preparing for Kindergarten Admissions  

Virtual Event: April 24, 12pm ET


Join Us!

We’re always thinking about the future, and we know many of you are too, especially when it comes to your child’s education. For those who are considering what comes after Vivvi, our co-founder and COO will be hosting a special webinar just for enrolled Vivvi parents focused on Kindergarten admissions for both public and private schools. Ben will be joined by two former Vivvi parents who are currently enrolled in a public and private Kindergarten and can speak to navigating the unique landscape of school applications in NYC. 

Topics we’ll cover:

  • Overall Kindergarten readiness

  • Private Schools: What to look for in a school, application process and timelines, the admissions process, applying for financial aid

  • Public Schools: Zoned schools vs. choice schools, application process and timelines, where to find information, Charter schools, and Gifted and Talented programs


Whether your transition is imminent or you just want to get ahead of the game, we hope you’ll join us to learn more (and bring your questions!). Even if you can’t join us live, register anyway and we’ll send you the recording.
