Background Element

We are excited to share that our latest innovation in early education is featured in The Boston Globe. Nurtury’s Family Child Care (FCC) Incubator will be the first of its kind in Massachusetts, equipping educators with the start-up space and resources needed to launch their family child care small businesses and provide on-site care for children in the Mission Hill area.

The incubator is designed to break down barriers for aspiring early childhood entrepreneurs who wish to open their own licensed, home-based FCC program but have struggled to find residential space that meets licensing requirements.

Nurtury’s Family Child Care Incubator will provide educators with support and temporary program space to start their own business and earn income while they search for a permanent housing location for their home-based FCC program.

By investing in small businesses led by women of color, Nurtury’s FCC Incubator aims to enable more FCC entrepreneurs to enter the field while increasing access to child care options for more families and supporting community economic development.

Thank you to columnist Yvonne Abraham for poignantly shedding light on this exciting pilot program and highlighting Julia Santo, one of our first three Incubator Residents, whose passion shines through in the article. We are thrilled to welcome Julia and the rest of our residents to our FCC Incubator this summer!
