Dear Parents,

Welcome to Westchester Tremont Day Care Center, Inc.  It is a pleasure to extend our services to you and your child and have you as a member of our community.  We trust that our relationship will be a very positive one.  

Our staff and teachers are devoted to improving the lives of others through education and 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.  

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 rate. Through play, your child will learn new concepts and understandings.  The arrangements of each room, choice of materials, and classroom management provide ongoing opportunities for children to play with a purpose.

Our performance standards are structured to:

  • Convey the importance of developing the whole child in all domains of learning – social, emotional, creative expression, physical and cognitive development
  • Facilitate learning experiences that are engaging, interactive and challenging
  • Provide a guide for the implementation of a child-centered curriculum that grows out of a teacher’s ongoing observations and assessments
  • Promote a safe, nurturing learning environment for all children

​We feel strongly that open communication between parents and staff members is essential to fully meeting your child’s needs.

Please read your Parent Handbook very carefully, as it is your guideline for our Center policies.

If you have questions – never hesitate to ask for clarification.

On behalf of all staff at Westchester Tremont Day Care Center, Inc., thank you for entrusting your child/ren to our care.

Marie J Milillo
Educational Director

If you get sick with Influenza, do not risk spreading the flu to others. Stay home and avoid close contact with others until your fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without help from over-the-counter medicine.  Respiratory and gastrointestinal (GI) virus illnesses are beginning to increase. We would like to remind you of steps you can take to decrease illness due to these viruses in your schools.  Respiratory viruses can spread very quickly in schools and may cause severe disease. The primary symptoms of respiratory virus infections such as influenza include fever over 100°F, sore throat and/or cough, chills and muscle aches. Influenza vaccination can limit the impact of influenza viruses and is recommended for all students and staff.  GI viruses such as norovirus can also spread very rapidly in schools. The primary symptoms of norovirus infection include vomiting and diarrhea which typically last 24-48 hours. More information on norovirus can be found at: http://www1.nyc.gov/…/doh/he…/health-topics/noroviruses.page

Preventing Illness in your School Careful attention to hand hygiene, cough etiquette, environmental cleaning and early intervention if illness is detected can limit the spread of these viruses. Posters are available to remind staff and students about the importance of hand hygiene and cough etiquette. https://www1.nyc.gov/…/flu-seasonal-brochures-andposters.pa…
• Encourage staff and students to wash their hands often with warm water and soap, especially after using the bathroom, before touching/eating food, or caring for someone who is sick. Whenever possible, younger children should be watched when washing their hands to be sure that they use soap and warm water, and dry their hands well.
• Encourage staff and students to cover cough/sneeze.
• Clean any surfaces that may be contaminated with influenza, norovirus or become dirty from vomit or stool immediately with a germ-killing cleaner (such as bleach). Wash hands after cleaning. Keep students away from areas until they are properly cleaned. For norovirus contamination, phenolic-based disinfectants have also been shown to be active against viruses but may require higher concentrations than manufacturer recommendations for routine use.
• “High touch” surfaces such as faucets, toilets, floors, tables, toys, hand rails, doorknobs, and elevator buttons should be cleaned frequently.
• Students or staff who have a respiratory illness or are experiencing vomiting or diarrhea should stay at home until they are no longer sick. Students or staff who develop illness while in school should also be sent home.
• Consider promoting hand hygiene education in your school by displaying hand hygiene posters and through classroom activities.
Our Day care Center has been advised to call our borough office to report a cluster of respiratory or GI illness (three or more ill staff or students within one week) for appropriate guidance.Type your paragraph here.


​We hope you enjoy keeping up-to-date with the many exciting things taking place at our Center.
