The Pueblo Day Nursery Children’s Foundation is a private foundation, incorporated under Colorado law to benefit the children of the City and County of Pueblo, only.
Pueblo Day Nursery Children’s Foundation has a very rich history. The Day Nursery was started in 1926 by Beta Tau Delta, a national sorority made up of prominent local young women. After several years the sorority members decided to withdraw from Beta Tau Delta and to form the Pueblo Service League.
The mission of the Nursery beginning in 1926 was to fill an important need in Pueblo: to provide a place to care for children of working mothers and single fathers. From caring for six children in 1926, the Nursery was at full capacity in 1976, serving 126 children
