Our ongoing funding efforts to help the children and families of The Day Nursery have resulted in a generous gift from the A. Montgomery Ward Foundation. The Day Nursery is very grateful to the Foundation for this gift that will allow us to upgrade the furniture in the classrooms, thereby enhancing the learning environment.
The $10,000 gift allows The Day Nursery to replace all of the tables used by the children throughout The Day Nursery, and all the chairs in one of the classrooms. Cheap plastic is now being replaced by long-lasting and durable wood table and chairs. All the new furniture will also be appropriately-sized for the children.
The Day Nursery is now seeking an additional $5,000.00, which will be used to replace the remaining chairs in all of the other classrooms.
It is community-minded foundations, companies, and people like you that sustain our 105-year institution!
The Day Nursery is grateful to all our donors. Your generous donations help us off-set the supplies, teaching, and infrastructure expenses that make The Day Nursery a gold-standard in early childhood care and education.
More about the Foundation: The A. Montgomery Ward Foundation was established by his daughter, Marjorie Montgomery Ward Baker, in 1959 to support and strengthen charitable institutions that provide quality educational and cultural programming for the current and future residents of Chicago, Illinois, and its surrounding communities.
