The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

The Q's School Tool: Part 9 or 10

Neighborhood parents will now have a private school alternative to the already kooky Public School dilemmas that plague nearly every ma and pa in the city.  An outgrowth of the already popular Lefferts Gardens Montessori pre-K on Rogers, this school has all the makings of a fine alternative, and one that comes with the smaller class sizes that are the hallmark of the best private schools. If Montessori is your thing, then you should DEFINITELY check out the Open Houses listed on the flyer - they're coming up this weekend, both this Saturday and April 26 at the 559 Rogers location, from 10-noon. There's a bunch of great people involved in the starting of the school. There will be some financial aid available, though I'm sure it's too soon to tell how much and for what income levels.

Anyway, check it out. I'm sure a lot of other "concerned parents" will be there. Don't you love that phrase? "Concerned Parent?" "I'm concerned about my kids." "I have a lot of concerns regarding the education of my children." "I'm concerned that there's too much violence in video games." etc etc.
