Teach them well and let them lead the way - These are the Children of our Future
Dear Friends of Brockton Day Nursery;
Brockton Day Nursery was established in 1894 to serve low income families with programs designed to “break the cycle of poverty.” Today, we are a full service Early Education and Out of School Time Care center delivering the highest quality care, fully accredited by state and national agencies, and complemented by social outreach support services to enable family self-sufficiency. Leadership at the local, state, and national levels acknowledge the importance of investing in Early Childhood Education and the impact it will have on sustaining our future if we continue to make it a priority.
At Brockton Day Nursery, we believe that all children, especially those living at or below the poverty level, should have the opportunity to start school in a quality environment, on equal footing, where they will be equipped to break the cycle of inter-generational poverty through access to quality education. Our teachers provide a happy, loving and stimulating early learning environment which emphasizes the five early childhood developmental domains: Cognitive, Language, Sensory Motor, Physical and Social/Emotional. Our students enter and continue their education in the public schools prepared to do well in all aspects – academically, socially and culturally.
As the celebration of our 120 years of service winds down, we look to our future and are working to execute a plan that will continue to benefit the community that we serve. Over the next three years, we will:
• Continue to provide an excellent educational environment for students and to address Brockton Day Nursery’s most urgent needs, such as building/facility upkeep, technology/computer upgrades, and capital improvements.
• Continue to provide tuition assistance/access to care to families in need who are low income but do not qualify for state subsidy.
• Provide tuition reimbursement and differentials for those educators who continue to advance their degrees in Education or related fields.
We also look to meet the daily operational challenges of the organization including the large financial burden we have endured during this brutal winter season.
To meet these challenges and sustain our program, we hope you will join us in supporting Brockton Day Nursery. It is through gifts such as yours that we are able to provide life changing development for children and families of the local community. Please help us continue to make a difference in lives of children for their future and yours.
