Overview

Overview

Day Nursery Assn Federal Center says

Day Nursery is the oldest child care provider in the state of Indiana, and is one of the few non-profit child care agencies in the Indianapolis area. Day Nursery was created in 1899 by the Kings Daughters Society who had provided clothing and food baskets to needy families. Wishing to expand their service, the Kings Daughters established Day Nursery to provide care for the children of working mothers. By 1940, modern child care standards were established, and as the need for quality child care grew, Day Nursery's programs and services became recognized as the "standard bearer" of early childhood excellence. Day Nursery is a non-profit organization of professional staff and volunteers. Our mission is to assure excellent early care and education for young children in central Indiana. Day Nursery operates seven Indianapolis-area child care centers that provide quality care daily to more than 750 children. Their parents are employed or students, and scholarships are available based on family income. A variety of sources fund Day Nursery's programs: parent fees, Child and Adult Care Food Program, Step Ahead councils, United Way, foundation and corporate grants, and contributions from individual supporters including the Day Nursery Auxiliary and the Day Nursery Foundation. Day Nursery revenue varies from year to year. However, the sources and percentage of the total budget for each source are fairly consistent from year to year. Current information is printed in Day Nursery's Annual Report.
