Prepare Now to Have Alternate Care

As Westchester schools, child care centers and after school programs continue to close temporarily, parents should act now to prepare alternate arrangements for daytime/after school care. Options may include:

  • A patchwork of care with family/friends and/or splitting child care duties with neighbors
  • Hiring a nanny (note – use our Nanny Guide to do your due diligence, as nannies are not covered under any regulations or oversight. Also, this option takes time and  may be expensive.)
  • Calling us for a list of OCFS-regulated child care programs/providers who may be willing to offer temporary care

NOTE: If your child or a family member is sick or has any possible exposure to coronavirus, do not bring them to another child care provider unless you receive the proper guidance from the Department of Health.

Call us if we can help: 914-761-3456 x140.
