Overview

The Commonpoint Queens’ Youth Education Services Department provides a full range of after school enrichment programs, trips, groups and special events for children currently in Kindergarten through 8th grade and their families. Through the use of activity-oriented programs, children grow and develop as positive, capable individuals while learning important interpersonal skills, social responsibilities and values in a supportive group environment.

Our child care staff consists of professional and para-professional youth workers, instructors, and teachers who are carefully selected for their commitment, skills and ability to relate to children with a caring, positive attitude.

We have programs at the following locations:
