As more families come to Long Island City, a leading children’s enrichment center has decided to call the area home.
New York Kids Club, founded in 2001, has announced it will open its 11th location in New York and the first in Queens on the ground-floor commercial space at 45-45 Center Boulevard in TF Cornerstone’s new waterfront tower.
“We’re so excited,” said Pam Wolf, NY Kids Club’s founder and CEO. “So many families have been telling us about Long Island City.”
The 5,000-square-foot center is expected to open in September 2014. The facility will include a state-of-the-art gymnastics center space with a giant trampoline, balance beams and sprung floors. The waterfront location will also feature three sunlit classrooms and an outdoor play space located on an outside terrace.
“There has been so much excitement for this location,” said Wolf. “Our goal is for social, emotional and academic growth for every child.”
NY Kids Club offers a wide range of classes such as fitness, art, music, Spanish, cooking, dance and theater for children up to age 12. The center also offers a preschool program for children ages 2 to 3. All classes are unique to each center and written by trained teachers.
Wolf said she has her eye on opening sites in Jackson Heights and Forest Hills in the future.
“We’ve had a positive response,” said Wolf. “We definitely want to find another location.”
The NY Kids Club in Long Island City is now enrolling for its 2014-2015 preschool programs. For more information or to sign up your child, you can visit www.nykidsclub.com.
