The Elizabeth Mascia Child Care Center was founded in 1968 as a not for profit corporation by a group of concerned citizens responding to a local need for organized child care. EMCCC has been continuously providing professional services in the Tarrytown community for more than forty years. The New York State Office of Children & Family Services is the licensor. EMCCC is a member of the Child Care Council of Westchester. Recently, EMCCC was recognized and honored as the organization of the year by the Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown Chamber of Commerce.
Originally known as Day Care Center of the Tarrytowns, the name was changed to Elizabeth Mascia Child Care Center in 1987 in honor of one of our founders and long-time Board members, Elizabeth “Libby” Mascia, a pioneer of organized child care in the Tarrytown area. After re-locating several times during the early years, EMCCC permanently settled at the site of the former Pennybridge School on Sheldon Avenue in Tarrytown and has now been there for more than twenty years caring for Toddlers, Preschoolers and School Age children.
