The Learning Station

Welcome to The Learning Station, a high quality learning center in Astoria. We are conveniently located at 31-24 38th st, and 31-32 47th st. We are an innovative and affordable child care and preschool, inspired by Montessori and cooperative learning approach. We serve children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old.

The learning station is a preschool program located in Astoria. We have been open since 2010. Our capacity extends to 16 children and 4 children for after school. We provide a clean, safe, and educational environment for children 3 months up to 12 years old. Let our family help you to take care of your little one in our learning center.

We are a school where children find the joy of learning. Our cozy homelike environment is designed to nurture children’s curiosity and eagerness to learn. We provide an engaging program using the classic method of Maria Montessori. Our typical day at the learning station begins with a three hour work period, during this time children are free to work on projects of their choosing.

Our classroom environment contains especially designed manipulative materials for development that invites children to engage in learning activities of their own individual choice under the guidance of a trained and experienced teacher. Children will learn by making discoveries with materials that cultivate concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.

Our curriculum and programs are designed to build a strong foundation in academics as well as social, emotional, physical and moral development. We offer an enriching curriculum based on the five components of the Montessori Approach: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Culture.

Our Mission

To provide a safe and nurturing environment to enhance learning with a positive and creative curriculum in order to become independent learners.

Experience why our children are HAPPY to learn!
