Home-Based Child Care Entrepreneurship Training

For the past two years, Children’s Council’s Family Child Care Business Incubator — part of our BizNest suite of programs and services for new and established early educators — has been a catalyst for change in early childhood education, supporting Black and African-American educators through the Mayor’s Dream Keeper Initiative and the Office of Economic Workforce Development, in partnership with the Department of Early Childhood. Thanks to this visionary program, we have awarded $600k+ in grants and stipends to support our educators while providing a full range of workshops and direct one-on-one coaching.
