A newly converted Pre-K space in Long Island City, toured by Councilmember Van Bramer today, will open its doors for the 2017 school year in September.
The Pre-K Center Q972 takes up two floors in a renovated four-story office building at 27-35 Jackson Avenue in Court Square, which will hold 180 seats for students. The School Construction Authority was in charge of the conversion.
“I am thrilled to see this beautiful new Pre-K Center in Long Island City completed in time for the start of the school year,” said councilmember Van Bramer, who also noted that parents are discovering that the neighborhood is a “great place to raise a family” in a statement.
The Pre-K center, part of school district 30, is currently accepting applications for the 2017 school year. For more information, visit the Pre-K center’s site.
The addition of a universal Pre-K center to the Court Square area was announced last year by Van Bramer to accommodate the influx of residents moving into Long Island City—over 11,000 residential units have been constructed in the past decade in the neighborhood.
