Early Enrollment Guide: January - 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.
