SCO Family of Services to Open Long Island City Early Childhood Education Center

August 27, 2021 / SCO News

SCO Family of Services will be opening a new Early Childhood Education Center in Long Island City, Queens. Slated to open at the beginning of the New York City school year, this new Early Childhood Center will be SCO’s first program located in Long Island City, broadening its expansive footprint in Queens.

The Long Island City Early Childhood Education Center will be SCO’s third Early Childhood Center in Queens, along with the Jerome Hardeman Early Childhood Education Center in East Elmhurst and the Corona Early Childhood Education Center in Corona. It marks SCO’s sixth Early Childhood Center overall, with three other centers located in Brooklyn.

The Long Island City Early Childhood Center fills a need for comprehensive early childhood programming in the area, offering full-day 3K and Pre-K for 3 and 4-year-olds. Our Queens Family Child Care Network serves younger children and can be applied for at the new Long Island City site.

SCO’s Early Childhood Education Centers offers a year-round, full day academic program in a safe and engaging environment. Literacy and math activities help children gain the skills for future school success. A wide array of physical activities and outdoor play help children develop strength, balance and motor skills. Art, music and drama round out the day. All children receive healthy and nutritious meals each day – breakfast, lunch and snack.

Our programs support English, dual-language learners, and children with IEPs. Families are engaged to become active partners in supporting their child’s language development.

The Long Island City Early Childhood Education Center is located at 38-11 27th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101 and is accepting applications for all ages. For more information, contact Marie Fadoul at mfadoul@sco.org or call 718-487-7070. Fill out an application.
