The Parenting Center at Commonpoint Queens provides the most welcoming, nurturing, and educational programs available in Queens. We offer classes for newborns to four year olds in music, dance, arts and crafts, movement, and pre-nursery separation. Our parenting classes provide the crucial foundation for youngsters who successfully advance to our nursery school and beyond. The Parenting Center serves more than 100 families and openly welcomes all members of our community. We are the hospitality center for families, helping them to discover one another and build a supportive, neighborhood feeling in our diverse community.

In all of our parenting classes, your son or daughter will learn basic educational skills in addition to learning how to share, take turns, listen, make friends and become more self sufficient. Your child’s coordination, fine and gross motor skills, memory, attention span and language will be developed and fine-tuned by participating in our programs. Our caring, devoted staff is available for support, guidance, information, and resources the minute you step into the building.
