For over seventy years, the Queens Centers for Progress Children’s Center has been providing superior services to families in the community. The Children’s Center’s dedicated and experienced staff provide preschool children with a warm and caring atmosphere that promotes learning, bolsters self-esteem and improves social skills. The large, bright, well-equipped classrooms and recreational areas allow children space to grow and flourish. The Children’s Center offers an array of options for parents of both typically developing (non-disabled) preschoolers and children with disabilities.

Preschool

For preschool children aged three to five with disabilities, the APPLE (A Preschool Program for Learning and Enrichment) program offers a comprehensive array of educational and therapeutic services, including speech, occupational and physical therapy, counseling and nursing services. Special education teachers, along with clinicians, emphasize cognitive, motor, social, and language development. We offer a full day program and integrated classes.

The majority of the children who participate in the APPLE Program will continue on to an inclusionary environment in the public school system.

PRE-K FOR ALL AND 3-K

Our Apple Tree Nursery School’s free Pre-K for All program for four-year olds and our free 3-K program for three-year-olds are run in collaboration with the New York City Department of Education. These programs prepare children for school, by giving them early experiences in a classroom setting with structured activities. Our Pre-K for All program also provides for interaction between children who are disabled and those who are typically developing children. The benefits for such inclusionary experiences for children with disabilities have been well documented. In addition, children who are typically developing get a chance early in life to interact with those who have disabilities and will grow from the experience.

We would love to give you a tour or share more information about our APPLE or Apple Tree programs. We are so proud of our staff and the services we provide.
