A new tenant may fill the space left vacant by New Discovery Early Childhood Center in the Kings Park School District’s administration building on Lawrence Avenue.
The Kings Park Board of Education will vote on a resolution Tuesday evening whether or not to approve a lease for a new childcare facility called New Beginnings.
Sylvia Bastone, owner of New Beginnings, presented the proposal to the board at last Tuesday evening’s meeting. Bastone worked for New Discovery as the education director.
District superintendent, Susan Agruso said there is a lease agreement, but it is not yet signed.
“The board will have conversation about it and see if the rent is acceptable, so we will see where it will go,” said Agruso in a phone conversation.
Bastone said the center would provide childcare for infants and preschool children as well as offer before and after school care for children already in school.
Bastone told the board that she has spent more than 20 years in the field and believes the center would be a good fit for the space.
The board is expected to vote on the resolution at the Tuesday evening meeting. Patch will keep you informed of the results.
