Today, we need your help to be the voice for our young learners.
The state’s budget impasse is affecting us…all of us.
Without an adequate fully funded state budget, essential services are being impacted statewide, most of the programs and services involving our most vulnerable populations.
Closer to home…
The Day Nursery currently provides an Illinois State Board of Education Preschool for All program for 40 children who have been identified as at risk for school success through the Early Childhood Block Grant. This specific program has not received any of its allocated funds for the current fiscal year, amounting to almost $70,000.
Join The Day Nursery and The Ounce of Prevention in sending a very strong and clear message to those who have been chosen to represent all of us in IL.

The time has come to pass a reasonable and responsible budget.
For our children, for our families.
Their future depends on it.
