ABC Preschool & Kindergarten Center

ABC Preschool & Kindergarten Center is a leading private provider of early childhood care and education in Queens. Everything we do at ABC Preschool & Kindergarten Center promotes learning and social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development.
Classroom Learning Centers engage children in learning moments through Sensory Play, Building Blocks, Dramatic Play, Art Center, Writing Center, Computer Center, and the Library. Children develop physical skills during outdoor fun and participate in our gymnastics program each week. Our special music enrichment program exposes children to a variety of music from Broadway to classical through singing, dancing, and listening.
Parents are a very important component at ABC Preschool. We invite all parents to be part of the classroom learning by volunteering to come in to do a Read-Aloud, and to share their expertise in areas from music and art to baking and storytelling. Parents in our daycare are invited to participate in Parent Workshops on throughout the year. Studies have shown that children meet with greater success when they receive family support. That is why the school to home connection is so important.
