Westchester Tremont Day Care Center, Inc. (WTDCC) is a fully funded Group Day Care, located in the Parkchester section of the Bronx, serving 86 children between the ages of 2.0 and 5.0 years. Our Center is multi-ethnic, multi-racial, and multi-cultural, thus representing the vast array of children whom we serve. Recent statistics show that the Bronx has 29% foreign born as compared to 20.4% citywide. The majority of children attending our Center are Afro American, Eastern European, Indian, Pakistani, Arab and Latino.
We are licensed by the DOH (Department of Health) and are funded through the Administration for Child Services (ACS), NYS CACFP (Child and Adult Food Program) and we have an active partnership with the DOE (Department of Education) for our FREE Universal Pre-K Program.
WTDCC is overseen by an energetic and competent Board of Directors and, most especially, a dynamic and caring staff, some who have been a part of the Center for decades. Our Center has active parent involvement initiatives and community activities that allow us to remain responsive to the community and the needs of the children whom we serve.
We have an active PAC (Parent Advisory Committee) whose officers work in concert with our Director to ensure a quality early learning program for your child.
BE FREE: Caterpillar to Butterfly Kit for Classroom is a fun way to put active learning into action! The children of Universal Pre-K - Class 4A - grew butterflies over the past few weeks and had a wondrous hands-on opportunity to learn about the concepts of life cycle and metamorphosis in nature.
Today, 5.9.18, the beautiful and delicate Monarch Butterflies were released. Children cheered as Ms. Peggy "invited" each butterfly to "be free" and the children enthusiastically sang along with youtibe version of USA for Africa - "We Are The World".
