Simona De Silvestro visited preschoolers in the Day Nursery Northwest Center in April to read to them and to learn more about our mission to provide quality early childhood education.
We’re only 3 weeks away from our new fundraiser Race Into Reading which will be held Wednesday May 9 in Indianapolis.

Ticket information can be found online or you can call our office at 636-9197 ext. 222 to charge your tickets by phone. Calling all Indy Car fans! This is a great chance to spend two hours talking racing and support a great cause.

The two-year olds in the Day Nursery Ruth A. Lilly Center, 3522 N. Central, love dressing up. All classrooms are set up with hands-on learning centers. These children are playing the Dramatic Play/Housekeeping area. To get the most out of dramatic play, children need a variety of materials, equipment, and props to encourage creative expression and imagination.
While you are doing your spring cleaning, keep Day Nursery in mind. We always welcome gently used donations of both men and women’s clothes and shoes as well as items that can be incorporated into prop boxes. Here’s an example of items you may have around the house that would be perfect for a restaurant-themed prop box: old take out menus, tablecloth or placemats, dishes, apron, vase and flowers, chef hat, order-taking pads, plastic plates.
You can drop off your donations Monday-Friday at any of our 7 Day Nursery locations listed to the right of this column or call me at 636-9197 ext. 227 if you have any questions about your donation.
