* Take Exit #33 Lakeville Road/Community Drive off the LIE.
* Head North on Lakeville Road (left if you’re coming from Queens/right if you’re coming from Suffolk County).
* Go straight up Lakeville Road. Cross Northern Boulevard (25A).
* Lakeville Road becomes Middle Neck Road. Keep going straight.
* Middle Neck Road winds through the town of Great Neck.
* You’ll go all the way through the town and you’ll start to see fewer and fewer store fronts.
* Keep your eye out for Appletree Lane on your right-hand side.
* All Saints Episcopal Church will be about 50 feet past Appletree Lane on your right. 

It’s a big complex of turn-of-the-century buildings. Head down the driveway on the far right. It will lead you to a parking lot in the back. The large stone building you pass on your way to the parking lot in the back is the studio. We are directly upstairs from the daycare.

Basically, once you turn off the LIE and head north, that is the only turn you need to make. Just make sure it is Lakeville Road and NOT Community Drive

FROM THE NORTH:

* Take the Cross Island Parkway South to the LIE East; follow directions above

FROM THE SOUTH

* Take the Cross Island Parkway North to the LIE East; follow directions above
