The new 15,000 square-foot facility on Route 9 offers 12 classrooms, an indoor playroom and outdoor playground. All Aboard can serve up to 135 children a day, from ages six weeks to six years.


All Aboard Day Care is a family owned and operated children’s day care facility. The new Ossining location is the third All Aboard in northern Westchester. The first one opened in Valhalla in 1996, followed by a Mount Kisco location in 1998.

Village and Town of Ossining Holds "Day of Remembrance and Renewal"


Unveiling the Village’s Memorial  Plaque

September 10, 2002

The Village and Town of Ossining are inviting the public to attend a "Day of Remembrance and Renewal" on Saturday, September 14th, beginning at 6:00 p.m., to mark the first anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. The event will start at Market Square on Main Street with a flag ceremony, then culminate at Engel Park with the unveiling of a special plaque dedicated to all of the heroes of 9/11. Musical entertainment and a barbeque will follow the dedication.


"Four Ossining families lost loved ones in the World Trade Center attack, and this our own community’s way of paying tribute not only to our local heroes, but those who lost their lives in Washington, D.C and Somerset County, PA as well," said Ossining Police Chief Joseph Burton.


The event will begin with a welcome message at Market Square, featuring a color guard comprised of several volunteer groups from throughout the village and town. The Ossining and Briarcliff Manor Fire Departments will also be on hand to raise the flag, while the Ossining High School band plays the "Star Spangled Banner." The flag will then be lower to half-staff for the Pledge of Allegiance.


Ossining Mayor Tom Cambariere and Ossining Town Supervisor John Chervokas will make brief statements, followed by an invocation by a minister from the Ossining Ministerial Association.


Following a rifle salute and the playing of Taps, the color guard will lead a procession down to Engel Park for the unveiling and dedication of the plaque, which features images of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Somerset County, PA, where the fourth plane crashed. The plaque is inscribed with the statement, "Though blurred eyed, we find strength and courage to soar beyond the moment. We look to the future knowing we can never forget the past. God Bless America."


"While we want to mark the first anniversary of this tragedy with a solemn ceremony, we also want to send a message to terrorists everywhere that they will never be able to crush the American spirit, and that we remain resilient as we work toward a better future," added Chief Burton.
