Early Enrollment Guide: January through February

Most private schools look to early spring to enroll children for the fall. For them, the months of January and February are key advertising months. But then there’s the fact that many of these same schools have summer programs that they also need to market in these same months… We have a solution. Advertise in The KD’s Early Enrollment Guide section. It’s a bit of a win-win situation: Increase fall and summer enrollment in one fell swoop. We encourage all private schools looking to increase their summer and fall enrollment to give us a call.

Spring & Summer Activity Guide: January through May

Every year for the past 20 years or so, The Kid’s Directory (the KD) has had the special section entitled the Spring and Summer Activity Guide. It has become the most sought after reference source for Mom’s and families planning their spring and summer activities. Just ask any of the thousands of advertisers who have been part of this special section in the past. For virtually all of them, it has been their most reliable and successful advertising choice to promote their camp, summer program, after school activity, and on and on. As always, this section will run from January through June and it will continue to be an excellent platform for any business that is looking to expand its activity during this most active of times.

Field Trip Guide: August through September

In August of 2005 The Kid’s Directory (The KD) started running a special section entitled the Field Trip Guide. This section was created in response to the many requests we received from administrators and teachers. They were looking for a single source to use while planning events and field trips for the year. Well, it’s worked beautifully. To augment the effectiveness of this section, we now hand address and hand deliver a Kid’s Directory to every school administrator within our distribution area every September. So now each advertiser is put directly into the hands of the school’s decision maker(s).
