PS 340 Pre-K Program

IF Afterschool is a licensed Pre-K afterschool childcare program. We provide a safe and nurturing environment, separate from our K-5 afterschool program. Our varied, daily curriculum is designed by early childhood educators to cater to the individual needs of your child. Each day your child will participate in multiple stations of active and creative self-guided activities, as well as speciality group sessions led by our teachers.
