2017 Storybook Celebration  'HELPING LITTLE HANDS GROW'
2017 Storybook Celebration "HELPING LITTLE HANDS GROW"
     Tuition at Tyler Day Nursery is based on a sliding scale according to a family's total household income. In order to be considered, individuals and/or families must complete an application and provide the required financial information. In the event that a space is not available, the child is placed on a waiting list.
     Students' tuitions contribute to a very small portion of the financial needs of the facility. Only through assistance from other sources can TDN operate effectively. Other sources of funding include:
  • The Tyler Council of Church Women
  • The United Way Agency
  • Local Churches/Synagogues
  • Foundations/Non-profits
  • Various Civic and Social Groups
  • Individual Donors
     An Annual Fund Drive takes place from September through March of each year. This provides the bulk of operating income over and above program income and United Way Funding.
     An annual fundraising special event, The Storybook Luncheon, is held during the spring of each year. This year's event will be held on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at Hollytree Country Club, starting at 12 noon.  The theme for this years 9th annual Storybook Celebration will be "Helping Little Hands to Grow".  Our friends at the celebration will be engaged by guest speaker Mrs. Sharon C. Thayer-Children's Author and will also witness a miniature awards ceremony.  Our Gracious Heart award  will be granted to Mrs. Mary Meyers, our Helping Hand award goes to none other than the Louis and Peaches Owen Family Foundation, and our Loving Spirit award will be presented to Mrs. Annette Findley.  It is truly an honor for these recipients to accept our token of appreciation because we can truly say they are all well deserving of their award titles. We hope to see you there!!
