New Childcare Center May Fill Space Left by New Discovery

The Kings Park Board of Education will vote Tuesday evening whether or not to approve a proposal by another childcare center, New Beginnings.


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.

Nobody is wondering any more , partner... because of how you write. You're trying to sound too sophisticated and using big words in your own language. All we read is Charc Char chume tume peen nam bo chin chakka choo woo. I'm getting me some scrambled eggs on a hoagie at the Lake Grove Diner. Next blog.......

Good riddance. And good luck to those on whatever blog you wind up at. It's too bad that you're unable (or choose not) to understand, nor capable of contributing to the discussion in a well-thought manner despite me having to obviously SPELL out with enough detail for any reasonable person to comprehend. Instead of focusing on the legitimate concerns brought up and coming up with an intelligent response that talks anything about the topic at hand, no, instead you try to divert attention away from that by focusing on...........nonsense. Typical. Grow up and, for the sake of anyone who would be graced by your obvious all-knowing presence on any blogs, do them all a favor and try to get educated. From what you are apparently inferring, finding some food for one's self will solve everything. Whatever. Just keep feeding your face some more crap - that is obviously what you must be good at since you are so focused on food. Here's some food for thought - Nobody cares what the heck you want to eat, nor what various culinary terms and cliches you wish to throw out there.

I tell you what, I'm not using Obama bucks to pay for it. We'd catch our squid with our bare hands, boy. Dangit, you made this all about you in the end. You wine like a princess from them MTV shows. Wah-wah,,,,ever hog tie or ride a tractor? Nah, you're too busy catching Illuminatis and cursing at the schools and acting prima donna.

Lordy, lord. What a surprise. I see how you have moved on to the next blog. By golly, gee whilikers, WTF are you even talking about? Gosh darnit, I have to admit, I don't understand imbecile lingo, nor do want to. And what exactly is your helpful contribution to the topic other than entertaining everyone by talking like some backwoods, inbred hick whose favorite movie is probably Deliverance? It's not about me and you know it. Again trying to divert attention away from the topic at hand while at the same time not providing any useful input. Regardless if you wish to erroneously choose to think otherwise (since it's not all about you or about how you wish to misinterpret or misconstrue things to suit your allegations or justifications), the fact is that it is as I've said all along - it's all about transparency and flow of information and full disclosure to taxpayers (or lack thereof), plain & simple. Nothing more. Ever go to school and learn how to engage in a civil conversation? Nah, too busy playing stuff the chicken back on the farm. Time to stop making the pigs squeal and go back to the cookie jar and have some cookies with your goat milk before taking that baby nap and dream about sheep.
