Each year the Parents League hosts panels of Preschool Directors and NYC Independent School Admission Directors.
The Preschool Panels are held in April, the Kindergarten Panels are held in September and April and the Middle and Upper School Panel is held in the Spring. The dates are posted on the website one month in advance and notices are sent to members. The panels are open to the public at no charge. A Parents League School Advisor moderates these discussions.

At the Kindergarten panel there are representatives from single sex, coed, large and small schools. Topics covered include:
