Last Thursday, Day Nursery joined over 425,000 people across the country in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, shattering a world record and bringing early education to a national stage. At the Day Nursery in the State Government Center, volunteers from Pearson Education made sure every child received their own copy of Corduroy, the book that was featured this year. The visitors read to the children and worked with them on a craft project.
At the same time, at the Day Nursery Avon Center in Hendricks County, the preschool classrooms participated in the national reading effort too. We didn’t have any national celebrities reading at Day Nursery, but we were happy to have some great teachers and volunteers heading up our efforts in Indiana. If you are interested in supporting Jumpstart and their national effort to put books in the hands of children, check out their on-line auction of celebrity autographed Corduroy books http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Browse.action?auctionId=74159581
If you would like to give closer to home, Day Nursery always welcomes donations of new or gently used books that are appropriate for children from infants through age six.
