WJCS-Westchester Jewish Community Services is once again thrilled to take part In The Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration launched by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

WJCS has long been committed to the healthy development of children in Westchester County and recognized the need for ALL children to have a strong early learning foundation to succeed. We’ve been proud to support children in the underserved communities of Westchester through our Parent-Child Home Programs (PCHP), an initiative which is currently expanding to include serving families in the Tarrytown/Sleep Hollow area. We will be celebrating our new program in Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow with an hour-long event at Warner Library in Tarrytown on Thursday, April 19th from 10:00-11:00 am.
