Sylvia Jackson is a Toddler teacher at Day Nursery Northwest. She is working on an Associates Degree.

Cathy Johnson , Human Resources Manager at Day Nursery knows first hand how hard it is to balance home life and work responsibilities when going to school. She graduated last year with a degree from the IU Kelley School of Business while keeping up with her two daughters and a new position at Day Nursery.  A big part of Cathy’s job is keeping track of the Day Nursery employees enrolled in school.  Currently, we have 46 staff enrolled in classes ranging from Child Development Associate certificates (CDA) to masters degree work. As nationally accredited early care and education centers, our requirements for staff education and training are carefully outlined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).  Last week, Cathy and Erin Slack, Human Resources Director created comfort kits for each of the 46 teachers to show them we all appreciate their dedication to the children of Day Nursery.  The gift included a fleece throw for snuggling up with a good (text!) book, a bar of chocolate, some microwave popcorn,  and a package of hot chocolate.  As a special treat, the package also included two movie tickets.
