With nursery school options for children ages 2-5 (including Free Pre-K For All), and Athletic Center, and a private pool club, find out why the Commonpoint Queens’ Bay Terrace Center is the place to be year round!

Our Early Childhood Center has successfully raised over a generation of neighborhood children and is still making nursery school new! As you and your child set off on the school journey, rest assured Commonpoint Queens provides a nurturing preschool environment that develops each child’s educational potential, self-confidence and social skills. Certified teachers and trained assistant teachers know every child and family.

Our Nursery school programs are designed to meet the learning, social and emotional needs of children ages 2 in September through the pre-kindergarten year. Some things you might see include:

Twos – The beginnings of socialization skills, enticing activities designed to foster our toddlers’ creativity, curiosity and motor skills. Importance of sharing, and strengthening of vocabulary.

Threes – Playing with blocks, house keeping, dress up, a two tiered play structure, water and sand tables, and easels. We encourage and nurture sharing, group behavior, individualized exploration, and creativity

Fours – Developing language is encouraged through conversation, problem-solving, imaginative play, stories and experience charts. Children develop socialization skills with activities that foster individual interpretation, as well as cooperative play and reasoning abilities.

The Pre-K for All at Commonpoint Queens Bay Terrace Center utilizes the key practices of family engagement, rigorous and developmentally appropriate instruction, professional collaborations, and leadership that support children in gaining the knowledge and skills they need to transition to Kindergarten.

We also offer a Breakfast Club before school program for P.S. 169, as well as early stay (drop-off as early as 7:30 AM) and late stay (pick-up by 6:00 PM) options for Pre-K and Nursery school students.
