Things to Do in Bergen County Week of August 10

Weekly Events  / 
We rounded up the best things to do in Bergen County and beyond on our weekend PLAYlist!
Sponsored Post: Ask any mom with grown kids, solid roots are planted in the preschool years. That's why Apple Montessori School in Oakland is focused on core values and getting to know your preschooler for the unique little being they are. With 40 years of "nuturing the whole child" in a Montessori setting (considered the gold standard in early education by many), before and after care, and accepting children as young as 2 years old, this school has it all. And the good news is you can hear first-hand about the many advantages that await your child at their upcoming open house and info sesh! (Visit their open house on Monday, August 22nd, 7-8pm, at their Wayne location 25 Nevins Road, Wayne, click here for more info)
