Getting An Early Start

Preschool offers opportunities for two-year-olds

If you have a little one in your life, Resurrection Preschool offers opportunities for the Fall 2014 School year. Held at Resurrection Lutheran Church, two programs are available for children who are two years of age.

Mommy & Me is a classroom setting for children who will be two years of age by December 2014, accompanied by a special adult. The program takes place on Wednesdays and the session is 90 minutes long.  Children participate in making crafts, singing, dancing, and socializing. It is a wonderful opportunity to spend quality one-on-one, instructive time with your child.

Time for Twos is a separation program for children who are two by September 2014. The 90-minute class meets two times a week. Two teachers lead the classes, with class size about eight children. This program has multiple sessions, where the children enjoy their time creating art projects, as well as improving social skills through music, dance and supervised playtime. For more information please contact the director of Mommy & Me, Karen Schoenfeld at 516-746-4426, or the director of the preschool, Christine Turner at 516-741-6447.

Lutheran Preschool has been a part of Garden City for more than 50 years. The school has programs for children ages 2-5, including a transitional kindergarten. Please contact Christine Turner for all of your preschool needs.

Resurrection Lutheran Church is a multi-site Christian community of faith, with our main campus located at 420 Stewart Ave., near Clinton Rd., in Garden City. All are invited to worship at 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays and at 8:30 and 11 a.m. Sunday mornings, with Christian education at 10 a.m. For more information, please call 516-746-4426, or visit resgc.org

Sports

Reminder

With the fall sports season upon us, the department of recreation and parks would like to remind all residents that pets are not allowed in any neighborhood parks, Community Park, or St. Paul’s fields. Non compliance with this rule will result in the issuance of appearance tickets.

Register For The Online Registration Option

Garden City’s Department of Recreation and Parks will offer the option of online registration with credit card payment beginning with its winter programs in early December.

In order for a family to use the online registration option, the family will first need to visit the recreation and parks office at 108 Rockaway Ave. to verify residency and their family information and receive their password.  A list of instructions as to how to use the website will be included.

Stretching tips for the high school athlete

Prior to the start of high school running season, Garden City’s Physical Therapy Options (PTO) had an opportunity to provide a presentation to members of Sacred Heart Academy’s cross country team. Team members gathered at Garden City’s New York Running Company to learn strategies and tips for a successful fall season.

PTO staff members Dr. Meghan Goetz, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and PTO Aide Mike Murphy discussed the importance of stretching to prevent injury and provided strategies and tips for success for the high school runner.
