Overview Of Our Programs

Beginning your Journey at The Q

The Early Years: Ages 2-5

The early childhood years are filled with the opportunity for children to explore, discover and develop their own sense of agency in the world.  Our Reggio Emilia inspired Early Years program begins with our private pay 2 year old classroom where children are nurtured to know they are cared for and important people in the world.  Our 3 year old and 4 year old preschool programs are funded through a partnership with the City of New York Department of Education and are called 3-K and Pre-K.  These programs also are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach but are free to families.  We work to give children invitations and explorations in the classroom that widen the variety of experiences they have had so far and provide the patience and support to develop their social/emotional skills with other children and teachers.

We have two locations: 43-12 46th St.  and  41-20 Queens Blvd.  The locations are four blocks away from each other.

Entering the Childhood Years: 

Elementary School at The Q

Childhood begins as children enter Kindergarten.  The entrance into this magical time includes new observations and integration of skills and experiences.  Children begin to lay down habits of learning during this time including the value of paying attention, having a positive relationship to reading and writing skills, developing their own voice and ideas, listening to the ideas and opinions of others, and trusting that their ideas will be heard and that they have a place in a community.

Our elementary classrooms have a maximum class size of 14 students with two teachers which provides the individualized attention that allows students to stay engaged and continually challenged in the classroom.  At The Q, we value giving students the opportunity to participate in the arts including: Visual Art, Theater Art, Musical Art and Movement Arts.  The arts are used to develop understanding in almost all school subjects and is also taught to develop the skills connected to the specific art mediums being presented.  We serve students who are creative thinkers who love learning, but might be bored or unchallenged in traditional classroom settings.  We work with each student to support their next step and we strive for all students to feel that their perspectives and ideas are heard and appreciated.

Open Studio After School Program and Q Classes

Our After School Program is for children in Kindergarten through 6th Grade. It offers outdoor time at the park after school, creative activities and project prompts, and homework help is offered daily. We encourage creative expression, community building, and provide space for children to explore new mediums, techniques and inspirations in both the arts and sciences.
