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

Small businessman finds big success

Anthony DePalma has been manager at Covert Avenue’s Raindew Family Center and Pharmacy for 13 years. Last month, at the 30th Annual Small Businessperson of the Year and Legislative Breakfast at the Crest Hollow Country Club, DePalma got his much deserved recognition when he was awarded the day’s top honor by the Covert Avenue Chamber of Commerce, whose members hail from Stewart Manor and Floral Park.  

“My initial reaction was ‘wow that’s very nice,’ I didn’t realize that it was going to be such a beautiful extravaganza,” said DePalma on winning the award. “They did it very, very well. They had a breakfast at the Crest Hollow Country Club and everything was done beautifully. It was just done very, very nicely. Very proud.”

School board shows off improvements at Stratford

This month’s Garden City Board of Education meeting saw a boost in attendance, and not just from district residents. This was the first board meeting to be held at Stratford School, so teachers and students there stopped by to show off the best it has to offer.

Leading the pack was school principal Eileen Vota, who gave the board a tour of the school before the meeting got underway. Along the way, highlights of the capital improvement project were pointed out, all a result of the 2009 School Investment Bond and Energy Performance Contract.
