Adding to its daycare portfolio Children of America is opening its 5th school in New York state, specifically Mohegan Lake in the Cortlandt Town Center. Along with the 10,000 sq. ft. daycare facility is a 10,000 sq. ft. playground and an 8,000 sq. ft. indoor Sports Courts at its side. The core business model for Children of America has always been childcare but for Mohegan Lake residents an additional sport facility has been added, bringing sport + fitness programming to local residents.

“Our childcare program has incorporated a nutrition and fitness foundation as part of the value-added programming we offer so we thought it fitting to extend this approach with a top-notch Sports facility,” said Jim Perretty, President of Children of America.

Perretty went on to say, “We are launching this new business model, for the first time in Mohegan lake and believe it will be a win-win for our childcare families as well as the community itself.”
