Our preschool programs are designed to offer young children an opportunity to play, explore, and engage in multi-faceted activities. Professionally trained teachers facilitate children’s growth through dynamic educational experiences. We provide a caring day care atmosphere in which children develop and thrive intellectually, socially and emotionally and where families feel welcome.
Children explore language arts, science, math concepts, music and the arts. We also offer an introduction to computers and provide outstanding resources for gross motor activity and out door play. Each child care center site has state-of-the-art classrooms and creative outdoor playgrounds. In addition, both of the Queens childcare sites have developed additional preschool enrichment programs including literacy and physical education that are offered throughout the year. Nursery school staff and parents remain in close communication through individual conferences scheduled during the year.
Day care centers teachers are licensed by the New York State Department of Education.
There is a teacher and an assistant teacher in each class.
