Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

Croton mom and resident (since 2002) Lesley Phillips has launched a new business helping children and families.  She is a Certified Child Life Specialist who provides home visits for children to prepare them for the arrival of siblings, assist kids in coping with medical illness and treatment, as well as bereavement support.  To contact Lesley or find out more, visit her website at, or Hudson River Healing, LLC on Facebook.


  1. Child Life specialists work a very special magic, helping kids who are struggling just get back to being kids--we have witnessed this wonderful magic firsthand and are so thrilled that Leslie will be making it readily available in our community!

  2. During March we honor all child life specialists and Croton should know how lucky we are to have Lesley here offering her services to our children and families. She will use her knowledge of child development combined w an array of education of coping strategies to support children and facing life's most challenging experiences. All the best Lesley!
