For Our Children

It is not possible to put into words anything that will make the loss of life yesterday (in Texas) less painful, especially following the horrific shooting in Buffalo, NY.

We join with you in shock and sadness.

Let us take care of ourselves and one another, so that we can be there for our children.

To all our wonderful colleagues in Westchester's early care and education community, if you might be interested in a time to connect with one another, please email Susan Panarella, Infant Toddler Mental Health Consultant, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
