Family Child Care

Family Child Cares are in-home based state-licensed programs which benefit families seeking a smaller and more intimate setting for the care of their children. They are a vibrant component of the Early Education field, predominantly owned and operated by women, particularly in Nurtury’s case, women of multicultural backgrounds. Children are introduced to curricula with a strong focus on school readiness which covers the five developmental areas while offering linguistic and cultural diversity.

  • License capacities range from 6 to 10 children
  • Serving ages birth – 13 years old
  • Flexible hours, full-day, full-year
  • Bilingual programs

FCC Incubator

Nurtury Early Education is launching a pilot program that will provide workspace and resources to newly licensed FCC educators who have not been able to acquire a space of their own due to the many housing barriers we are currently experiencing. This program will enable more small businesses to join the field and expand family access to child care.

The incubator will also include a Resource Room, offering shared access to tools and training, giving all of Nurtury’s FCC Educators the opportunity to build community while accessing supplies, equipment, and expertise to support their small businesses.

They say it takes a village to raise a child… I am thankful that my village is Nurtury. They have helped me in so many different ways like supporting me, understanding me and being a great role models for my children’s. They help working parents balance their day to day. My children have learned so much, the teachers are dedicated, loving and understanding.

There really was no other place, but Nurtury. I not only knew that for my daughter, but my nieces too. Our family comes here because Nurtury is a place that we can trust. Nurtury is always going to have a special place in my heart as an alum and a parent.


Nurtury Alum and Parent


It feels like every week, our son is developing a new skill or hitting a new milestone. The caretakers at Nurtury are very invested in the children, and it shows. Our son loves going to Nurtury, and we feel lucky to have this care center as part of our son’s upbringing.
