The Montana Avenue Branch Library in Santa Monica is scheduled to present two programs for parents of preschoolers this month.

The library, 1704 Montana Ave., will host the program “Choosing the Right Kindergarten for Your Child” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, January 8th, and “Choosing the Best Fit Preschool for Your Child” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, January 15th.

The programs will be led by Christy Bergin, education consultant and founder of Best Fit School Service, and Tanya Anton, author of Westside Guide to Public Elementary Schools.

Bergin has been consulting with families about their preschool and kindergarten options for over four years. Her recently published book, Best Fit Preschool Directory, is considered a leading education resource for Los Angeles-area parents, according to the library.

With her experience as a former teacher and with her research of L.A.-area schools, Bergin has “made her mark as the go-to person” when it comes to choosing a school, according to the library.

Anton has written for Brain Child magazine, HipMama and other on-line sites including her GoMama blog. She recently co-hosted the Venice edition of “Martinis, Magnets & More” with NPR’s Sandra Tsing Loh and Three Martini Playdate author Christie Mellor, and has coordinated and spoken at kindergarten-related events locally.

The programs are free and open to the public. Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis.
