TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Tarrytown's Phelps Memorial Hospital Center held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of a new addition to its Robin's Nest Child Care Center.
The 3,860-square-foot, $1.4 million expansion allows the day care to accommodate 40 more infants, toddlers and preschool age children, ages 2 months through 6 years.
"The Robin's Nest has a long tradition of providing excellent child care for local families and hospital employees. The need we are meeting for greater capacity is a solid indicator that the community is recovering from the recession, with more and more parents employed," Phelps President and CEO Keith F. Safian said in a statement. "Phelps is delighted to be able to support our region's economic growth by making it possible to provide care for a greater number of young children."
The Robin's Nest operates year round from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and can now accommodate a maximum of 130 children. The center is fully equipped with safe and fun indoor and outdoor play areas, as well as a highly-skilled teaching staff. Every teacher employed at the Robin's Nest holds at least a four-year degree and provides high-quality early childhood programming.
