Robin's Nest

Robin's Nest is located in Sleepy Hollow on the grounds of Phelps Memorial Hospital, overlooking the scenic Hudson River. The center, established in 1988, is licensed by the New York State Department of Social Services and maintains NAEYC accreditation.

The program operates year round from 7am-7pm and provides care for children ages 2 months through 5 years old. To ensure safety in our center a security system is in place.

The Center's program is designed to include both planned and spontaneous activities in response to children's interest. Experiences with music, art, language, math and science are incorporated into daily plans. Our highly-skilled teaching staff provide high-quality early childhood programming. The inclusion of all children in the learning community is the foundation of our program. Families are valued partners in the learning and development of their child. The exchange of ideas between families and teachers brings vitality and richness to the school by contributing distinctive experiences and diverse wisdom.
