AHRC NYC - Astoria Blue Feather Early Learning Center

Principal: Sandra Evangelista

UPDATED: June 7, 2022

Astoria Blue Feather Early Learning Center (ABF) is a barrier-free school located in Astoria, Queens, which has provided high-quality services to children and their families for over twenty years.

ABF accepts children ages 3 to 5 years of age who have developmental delays such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disabilities, Communication Disorders, Down Syndrome and Orthopedic needs.  We educate our children in classrooms of 12:1:2 and 8:1:2; ensuring a high teacher to student ratio in each instructional setting.

We understand that children learn best when content is presented in various modalities, including a dominant/preferred language so ABF has teachers and therapists who can provide bilingual instruction in Spanish. Our bilingual staff is eager to assist families in grasping the sometimes complex issues surrounding their child’s diagnosis, preschool education and future decisions regarding their child’s academic needs.  The staff at ABF Early Learning Center implements developmentally appropriate practices to work with and stimulate each child depending on their learning needs.  Technology, such as computers, iPads, and the Smart Board, is utilized in the classroom environments as well.

ABF Early Learning Center provides a variety of opportunities for parents to become partners with our program by visiting the school, by attending:  free workshops, parent training, and parent support groups, by participating in their child’s therapy session, team meetings, Parent and Teacher Conferences, school trips, and school events.
