The Bethany Lutheran Daycare received two grants from the Story County Community Foundation at a ceremony on Nov. 8, – a Community Grant ($6,000) and a McCallsburg Legacy Grant ($1,892).


The day care is a year-round, nonprofit child care center providing services to Northeast Story County. Tami Julius, director of the Bethany Lutheran Daycare, said the grants will be used to provide added training for the staff and educational materials for the classrooms. Classroom floor repairs and administrative software will also benefit from the grants. Julius added, “Our day care is growing and these changes will improve the quality of care we can provide.”
