    The bkbmoms 2nd School Fair is a one-stop gathering for families to meet with representatives from preeminent schools in the area to access information and resources for finding the right school for our kids.

    The task of researching and selecting a school for children can be daunting for all of us, especially considering the overwhelming number of choices available. Many families are trying to find the perfect fit while navigating through endless information regarding school facilities, personnel and educational philosophies. This process is often filled with hope, trepidation, and anxiety.

    The Fair is opened to everyone in the Miami community on November 8, 2014.  While meet & greet with school representatives will be taking place in main lobby area, an educational conference will be taking place at the main conference room.
