Last Saturday I spent part of the morning at our Day Nursery Clarian Center where a small group of parents and teachers had gathered to do some deep cleaning of the center. This much needed semi-annual cleaning is difficult to do when children are present during the week.  Several of the parents had responded to our call for volunteers for this project, which was part of the city-wide United Way of Central Indiana Family Day of Caring.  I briefly met Dr. Prasad as she paused for this photo before heading down the hall to work on a bulletin board about India in the classroom of her two-year-old daughter, Meghanna. I had a bit more time to get to know Kristen, mother of Will, a preschooler and Melissa, mother of Sydney, an infant as they worked scrubbing plastic toys and buggies.  All the moms I spoke with said they gratefully gave up their free time to help the Day Nursery teachers who do so much for their children during the week. This event was a perfect kickoff for National Family Week. We are thankful for all the great parents who support our staff.

    I thouroughly enjoyed spending time at the Day Nursery for a few hours on a Saturday morning. I felt great knowing I was helping out those who care for my daughter. I figure I would rather the caregivers spend time taking care of my daughter rather than scrubbing out the wagons and buggies! I look forward to the next time I can help out!
