Lois C. Lee Early Childhood Center in Queens
The Lois C. Lee Early Childhood Center in Queens is a universal pre-kindergarten center that continues a legacy of compassion, hope, and joy in being responsive to needs of children & families. The early childhood center's education philosophy is to educate the whole child by focusing on the SPICCE (Social, Physical, Intellectual, Creative, Cultural, Emotional) development of children.
Our 3-year-old students adjust to their first year in school through dual-language, hands-on, thematic project-based literacy activities. Our 4-year-olds learn skills through interactive hands on projects. We use the Early Childhood Framework for Quality Great Schools, Teaching Strategies Gold Assessments and actively communicate with our families to involve them in the education of their children.
Our full day program for children is open from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
Our program makes an impact on students of all levels and from all backgrounds, including children who have spent their early years with family members abroad. Students often go on to Gifted and Talented programs or attend our afterschool program at PS 20. More than 90% of Pre-K students passed the English component (ESL).
This program is funded by the NYC Department of Education and the Ong Family Foundation.
