‚ÄčFour hundred participants of CCBQ's Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program recently


On August 3rd, CCBQ sponsored its 10th Annual Kids Fun Day tailored to families with children in grades K through 8, providing resources for back-to-school, health and safety. Held at the Parish of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Astoria, Queens, the block party style event included fun activities for everyone. Children enjoyed a bounce house, Home Depot woodworking, face painting and crafts from the Queens Museum of Art. In addition to live music and a Zumba demonstration, parents and guardians gained access to an array of resources from over 35 organizations.


Our Parkside Early Childhood Development Center had a great time during their End of Year trips. Employing the Montessori approach, our programensures children are ready for school by providing a variety of both child- and adult-initiated, developmentally appropriate activities. These activities promote cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. The children had a lot of fun at the Victorian Gardens and the Coney Island Aquarium. They got on rides, saw the sharks and other fish and enjoyed the sea lion show!
