EMCCC will have to be closed again on Monday, November 5th as a result of no electricity, heat, hot water, and telephone service following the storm. Con Edison is reporting that power should be restored to the child care center by late Monday night. It has been impressed upon them that EMCCC is a child care center serving over a hundred children each day. We are hopeful to be back open on Tuesday as long as the building is fully functional. Every effort is being made to resume all of our programs as soon as possible. We ask for your patience for just a little bit longer. Please keep checking here for updated notices.

We sincerely regret the inconvenience that the extended closing of EMCCC has created for so many people. The inside of the building on Sheldon Avenue seems to have weathered the storm intact. There is no apparent damage. Presently the child care center remains without electricity, heat, hot water, and telephone service. As long as that remains the status quo it is unsafe for habitation. We have been in regular contact with Con Edison and the New York State Office of Children & Family Services. Every effort is being made to return to normal operations as soon as possible. We can only provide child care and early education services if it can be done safely and legally. Alternative solutions for families are being explored should the building have to remain closed much longer. Unfortunately there are no quick solutions to this difficult situation. We ask for your continued patience as we work towards a solution that will ensure the safety and well being of all the children we are entrusted with. Thank you for your continued support of EMCCC during this difficult time for so many people in our community, state, and country.

We are sad to announce the passing of our founder and matriarch Elizabeth "Libby" Mascia at the age of 91 on September 15, 2012. Libby, as she preferred to be called by those who knew her, was an inspiration to so many people and will be greatly missed. She was a truly remarkable woman who will live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew her. Please contact the EMCCC office at 914-631-2126 or email@example.com for wake and funeral information.
