Our Vision And Mission


At P.S. 304, The Early Childhood Lab School, we welcome and embrace children from a myriad of cultural, social and religious backgrounds. Our primary goal is to open and educate young minds and instill a lifelong love of learning. Our school environment nurtures tolerance, acceptance of others, and of oneself. We work hard to build a well-rounded educational foundation. At the cornerstone are effective, committed and driven teachers who inspire students to improve academically, while pushing their own creative, physical and intellectual boundaries. The social and emotional development of every child is as of much concern to us as the academic piece. Administration, teachers and staff are single-minded in the goal of providing an optimal learning environment for students. Educators are supported professionally, and in turn, support students to meet their fullest potential. P.S. 304 is a collaborative, concerned community, conscious of the well-being of the whole child. Parent involvement is not only welcomed, it is considered an essential element to the continued success of our students and their school.

Parent Engagement Tuesdays

Parent-Teacher Engagement Calendar 2016-2017

Dear Parents,

As you know Parent Engagement time is EVERY Tuesday from 2:40-3:20pm.

During this time teachers accept appointments to meet with parents or guardians to discuss performance and progress. You can make arrangements to meet in person with your teacher or have a telephone conference, whichever is more convenient.

Our teachers have collaborated and planned some special Tuesdays to present exciting and informative parent workshops for each grade. Workshops will focus on topics relevant to your child’s curriculum.

We will announce each topic prior to the date however we are informing you NOW so you can mark your calendar and join us! Thank you and hope to see you at every Tuesday Parent-Teacher Workshop!
