We recognize and respect the individuality of each child.  From the very first day, we focus on getting to know your child.


At Westchester Tremont Day Care Center, Inc., we are entirely dedicated to the belief that your child is the hope of our future and deserves to be given every opportunity to become an outstanding citizen of tomorrow.  It is a pleasure to extend our services to you and your child and have you as a member of our community.

Our program is based on the belief that young children, regardless of background and abilities, can be nurtured and challenged in an atmosphere that encourages, respects, and fosters curiosity, spontaneity, skill development, self-expression, responsibility and the development of a positive self image.  At WTDCC, we are dedicated to helping your child grow and develop to their full potential according to their own special learning styles, interests and personalities.  We believe each child is unique and our goal is for all children to develop at their own pace.





Our Center is designed to support a high-quality early care education system for your child. All classrooms are filled with age-appropriate learning materials and resources and are arranged in a center-based fashion to encourage exploration and "play with a purpose".  We create a welcoming environment that offers learning opportunities that build on children's current knowledge and at the same time stretch their thinking and extend what they already know about themselves, relating to the others and the world around them.  There are five (5) Domains that encompass the development of the whole child and each classroom is arranged to foster development in each of these areas:


​Each classroom atmosphere stimulates skill development in each of the above listed domains and promotes positive experiences for successful learning in a safe, clean, hygienic and encouraging environment.


Westchester Tremont Day Care Center also boasts an incredible 8,581 square foot, state-of-the-art outdoor level playground which is on the premises and used daily by the children to foster gross motor development.  We have a vast array of ride-on toys (bikes and wagons), a pretend gas station and signs that encourage "rules of the road", a basketball structure designed for preschoolers, an outdoor sand and water table, Play-Panels that promote learning in the areas of Math, Music, and Science, a Playhouse, Climbing and Slide Structures, Picnic Tables and Benches to allow for outdoor activities and picnic lunches and a grass area that can be used for story time along with a planting garden area for each class to use in conjunction with their science studies.
