New York State Senate Deputy Majority Leader Dean G. Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) today presented a $15,000 grant to the Rosa Lee Young Childhood Center located in Rockville Centre.
"By offering affordable child care for working families, the Rosa Lee Young Childhood Center provides an important service to the community," said Senator Skelos. "The Center enables working parents to begin their children’s education in a safe, educational environment and I’m pleased that this state grant will enable the Center to help local families."
Established in 1972, the Rosa Lee Young Childhood Center provides children with a warm, nurturing, safe environment, rooted in education, where daily learning takes place.
