    Our 3rd School Fair and Conference took place last Saturday, October 10th. We had over 400 people at our one-stop gathering for families to meet with representatives from preeminent schools to access information and resources for finding the right school options.

    The Fair was opened to everyone in the Miami community even Juana La Iguana came to visit!. While meet & greet with school representatives took place in the main lobby area, the amazing educational panels took place at the Atlantis conference room. We were honored to have so many great speakers. The Educational conference covers various topics: admission processes, public vs private, bilingual and multicultural education and preschool choices. Victoria Kenny, BKB Moms’ Director opened the fair with some welcome remarks and a positive message to encourage all parents to become active participants as the first and most important teachers of our kids. In partnership with Ashoka, BKB Moms is encouraging parents to become involved in the upcoming parenting change-making group (please email us if you are interested in joining info@bkbmoms.com).
