Programs and Events

Manchester's School Readiness Council is dedicated to serving families and providing programs for Children, Parents and Educators.

Manchester School Readiness Council annually hosts an Early Childhood Fair in early spring.  The goal has always been to educate the community on the importance of quality early learning experiences and provide parents with information and resources on the programs and services available for young children in Manchester.

Over 40 exhibitors participate in the fair each year. Look for information on the fair at the beginning of each calender year as the fair is held in late winter or early spring. 

We hope you will join us for next year's fair!
