Investing in The Day Nursery

An old picture of The Day Nursery.  It speaks to the fact that we are 103 years old and still serving our communities of Oak Park, River Forest and even beyond.  Each year we have a set number of children we can accept into our program.  As you know our program covers the spectrum of family income and therefore can offer a sliding scale for the monthly fee.

This year The Day Nursery must raise $58,000.00 for financial support given to our enrolled families. Your contribution provides access to early detection and early interventions that ultimately unlock possibilities for all our young children.

In fact, “How Investing In Preschool Beats The Stock Market, Hands Down” is an article by NPR Ed about early childhood education.  This is the link to that article which we ask that you read and share. One of the beginning paragraphs read: “What if the investment is in children, and the return on investment not only makes economic sense but results in richer, fuller, healthier lives for the entire family?”

We recently shared a blog post about Why I Give by Susan Murphy. It is people like Susan and you that does make a difference in why we do what we do.

In our year end letter November 8th, 2016 we asked our supporters for their help in reaching our goal.  We hope you are one of them and donate now.

It is wonderful to have your support!
