Details and RSVP

As Westchester's #1 resource for child care, we can be most helpful to parents when they call and speak to one of our specialists directly. So, our Resource and Referral Department is staying open late every Tuesday, until 7pm. Just call (914) 761-3456 x 140 to reach an expert counselor.

We're also pleased to offer parents even more detailed information about what matters to them most. For instance, we can now tell you about local child care programs that have earned the "Asthma Friendly" Endorsement from the American Lung Association, and are especially ready to serve children with asthma... and programs which have earned the "Breast Feeding Friendly" certificate from the NYS Department of Health. And, for those families thinking about using in-home care, our new "Ultimate Nanny Guide," has everything you need to know to make sure your child is safe, loved and learning.
