About the Provider

Description:

I love taking care of children, especially babies! My children have all grown up and I miss teaching and learning with little ones. My first language is Spanish and I speak it everyday to the children. Being Bilingual is a great skill to have when the children become older. It’s is much easier for a child to learn both English and Spanish then it is for a teenager. That is why I focus on teaching the children to think and speak in both.

Caterpillar Day Care takes children from 6 weeks old up to 13 years old. We have been licensed by Westchester County and have been in business since 2007. We accept vouchers, DSS, and private funding. If you are interested in how Caterpillar Day Care can help you and your family, please feel free to contact me.
