Thank you to the Season for Sharing, a fund of The Indianapolis Foundation, for providing $10,000 toward the Day Nursery Tuition Assistance Program. In 2012, more than 300 Day Nursery children and their families received assistance from our program . This funding allows all families to choose high quality, accredited early care and education for their children.
Families in need of tuition assistance should contact any Day Nursery location via this contact form or call 317-636-9197.
Thank you to Indiana Members Foundation – Joan Wolfe Legacy Grant for your support of Day Nursery’s Tuition Assistance Program.
In 2012, our tuition assistance program helped over 300 families access quality early childhood education.
Joan Wolfe worked for Indiana Members Credit Union for 27 years and was a huge supporter of Indiana Members Foundation’s mission to provide school children with the necessities essential for learning and succeeding in their education. Joan lost her fight with cancer in March of 2013, but her fight to help children succeed continues with the Joan Wolfe Legacy Grant.
The Indiana Members Foundation investment in the youngest children of Indianapolis is so valuable, and we are grateful for your belief in our mission. We are delighted by your commitment for helping make quality early care and education available to all families in our community.

Since 1998, Carolyn Dederer has dynamically led the Day Nursery Association of Indianapolis. Carolyn will be retiring August 2, 2013 and we wish to thank her for leadership and service. Her untiring effort to grow Day Nursery and raise the bar for early childhood education in our community is truly commendable. Last night we celebrated Carolyn’s service with a party. Here are a few pictures from the event.

It’s Thankful Thursday!
Thank you to PNC – Grow Up Great for supporting Arts for Learning programming and workshops in all seven Day Nursery Centers in 2013! This month, Day Nursery children were able to experience The Naptown Jazz 5 ensemble as they learned about jazz instruments and sounds. The children learned about the instruments during “Old McDonald Had a Band” and marched around the room during “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
Additionally, PNC – Grow Up Great generously sponsored more than 241 Day Nursery children and staff to attend a performance of Bean Stalk-The Musical at the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre in June.
Take me out to the ballpark! And one last shout this week for PNC – Grow Up Great, as PNC has generously donated more than 100 tickets to Day Nursery families to attend this weekend’s Indianapolis Indians’ game against the Louisville Bats.
Thank you PNC – Grow Up Great for enriching the lives of Day Nursery children!
