Boston, MA - November 16, 2017
Nurtury, Boston's leader in delivering early education and care, announced today that it has completed the merger of Franklin Square House Children's Center, which has served children and families in the Mission Hill neighborhood community for more than 30 years.
Franklin Square House is a great strategic fit for Nurtury. The acquisition expands Nurtury's footprint in Greater Boston, adding a sixth center that will serve twenty-nine children in two classrooms — expanding our toddler and preschool classrooms to forty agency-wide.
Executive Director, Jen Demetros has been the center's director for four years. Her commitment to the center's children and families has created a warm, nurturing educational environment for children. She remarked, "This decision positions us to become part of one of the best and largest early education and care agencies in the City of Boston."
"We are excited to welcome the Franklin Square House children, parents, and employees to Nurtury! Delivering high quality early education and care to prepare children for kindergarten and beyond will continue to be our number one priority" said Wayne Ysaguirre, President and CEO of Nurtury. The completion of the transaction means that children, parents, and staff at Franklin Square House will benefit from Nurtury's comprehensive administrative service capabilities, which will increase their ability to operate in an efficient and effective manner.
Franklin Square House Children's Center will remain at its current location at 1575 Tremont Street in Boston, MA, and will be renamed Nurtury at Franklin Square House.
Nurtury gives Greater Boston's youngest children in need, from birth to age five, the opportunity to reach their full potential by investing in school readiness, promoting healthy development and strengthening families. For over a century, Nurtury has been one of Boston's largest providers of early education and care, currently impacting over 1,200 children in the Greater Boston area.
