The instructors at Kisco Learning Center believe that the simple combination of studying, parental support, and a good school experience leads directly to academic success. Over the past 12 years they have tailored their programs to supplement each of those components in small-group settings. Tutoring sessions facilitate studying and teach effective strategies for solo cramming, and helping with homework removes parents’ stress of having to be academic taskmasters. Personalized curricula shore up students' skill gaps, banishing the anxiety and self-doubt that keep pupils from getting the most out of their classes at school.
Older students racing toward college can take advantage of the SAT- and ACT-prep programs, which immerse soon-to-be test takers in an intensive study of their chosen exam. This fills heads with pertinent knowledge, time-saving tips, and horror stories of the Scantron machine that haunts your dreams if you don't completely fill in an answer bubble.
What began as a tailor shop more than a century ago evolved into Cleaning by Frederick’s, a chain of dry-cleaning outposts certified by the Department of Environmental Conservation for their environmentally conscious techniques. Cleaning by Frederick’s technicians employ decades of experience as they clean shirts, pants, and dresses, and gently remove stains embedded in delicate suedes, leathers, bridal gowns, and space suits. Most locations have a full-time tailor who can do alternations, and patrons can drop off their garments or arrange pickup and delivery service.
Eco Green Cleaners drivers zip throughout Armonk, Pleasantville, and Bronxville, picking up and dropping off clothes of all kinds. Each garment is meticulously dry cleaned with nontoxic and biodegradable solvents—or with hydrocarbon dry-cleaning techniques—and processed with energy-efficient machines for a minimal impact on the environment. Clean clothes are returned in biodegradable or reusable bags, and the cleaners recycle their hangers to reduce waste. In addition to its dry-cleaning and shirt-laundry services, Eco Green also cleans leather, suede, and rugs, preserves wedding dresses, and alters clothes to accommodate weight changes or tail growth.
