Tucker Levy, Chief Operating Officer of Nurtury (formerly Associated Early Care & Education) accepted the Community Recognition Award from ABCD’s Foster Grandparent Program in celebration of their 50th Anniversary.
Nurtury has been a longstanding partner of ABCD and Nurtury’s children have been the beneficiaries of this program. Foster grandparents circulate within classrooms and serve as role models, mentors, and friends. “The ABCD Foster Grandparent Program compliments our work to give Greater Boston’s youngest children in need, birth to age eight, the opportunity to reach their full potential by investing in school readiness, promoting healthy development, and strengthening families,” said Levy.
Foster Grandparents play an essential role in helping Nurtury to provide what children need in abundance – kindness, patience, humor, and comfort. The 600 children served throughout Nurtury’s six Early Education and Care Centers are strengthened by the presence of Foster Grandparents.
Nurtury is honored to be among ABCD’s six community partners: ACORN, Infants & Other People, Boston City Hall Child Care Center, Josiah Quincy School, and Bernazzani School. Congratulations to ABCD President/CEO John J. Drew on their 50th Anniversary of the Foster Grandparents Program and a heartfelt thank you to all of the Foster Grandparents.
