Thank You For Dining With Us!

Untitled design 2


What a crowd! It was such a pleasure to see so many of you at our Dining for Dollars event at Sam's of Gedney Way. 

It certainly was a fabulous evening supporting the Council's Early Opportunity Fund, which was created to help ease the financial burden of early care for hard working Westchester families.

We would like to extend a special thank you to restaurant owners Peter and Karen Herrero for collaborating with us on this special event.

"Calls for Kids" Program 2017

Calls For Kids Brochure

The Child Care Council of Westchester is launching a new "Advocacy on the Go" campaign to tap the power of Westchester parents to improve child care access, quality and affordability - starting with "Calls for Kids" in November. Teams of Council staff, Board members, and volunteers will visit child care and after school programs all ofver Westchester to encourage parents to call their County leaders and ask them to increase child care funding. These "Calls for Kids" will be made on the spot as parents arrive to pick up their children at the end of the day.

No one can convey the critical importance of safe, reliable, quality child care better than working parents, many of whom struggle to pay for care. The Council is eager to involve more parents in on-going child care advocacy. With over 20 programs signed up to participate in Advocacy on the Go, the Council expects to engage hundreds of parents for the first time.

So if you are interested in empowering your parents, sign up your program for "Calls for Kids" today.
