Who We Are

Beth Gavriel Preschool has been operating since 1996 and it is part of a true multi-cultural Jewish community in Forest Hills, Rego Park, Queens. The center provides daycare services from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday-Friday for children two to six years of age and our staff are professional and certified teachers.

We offer various activities such as music, art, jamboree, drama, and computer. The daycare is also open during the summer in July and August for our summer program. The summer program includes trips, entertainment, a swimming pool, parties, and then some!

We also provide for older school-age children an after-school achievement program. This program offers homework help, computer instruction, creative art projects, music, dance, outdoor activities, buddy help, and friendship.
