Group expands infant day care services in Yonkers
Working parents in Yonkers are getting a helping hand from the Greyston Foundation that unveiled today two new rooms designed specifically for infant care at its day care center on Warburton Avenue.The center currently serves 87 children from low-income families between the ages of 6 weeks to 5 years old. With the new rooms, there will be an additional 12 spaces for infants."We're excited about moving more families into Greyston child care, particularly for this very young age when people really need day care," says Greyston Foundation President Steven Brown. The Greyston Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that offers a wide range of services, from job programs to low-income housing and youth services. "This is the best time for this to happen for this community because this community is really in great need for this type of services," says City Councilwoman Patricia McDow (D-Yonkers). The new infant rooms at the day care center are expected to be open for business in about a week.
