MyVillage raises $6 million to combat rural “childcare deserts”



ImpactAlpha, April 18 – Bozeman, Mont.-based MyVillage is trying to make quality early education programs affordable and accessible in rural parts of the U.S.—areas it calls “childcare deserts.”

The company trains and mentors in-home childcare providers and provides them with tools to start a licensed program, like free insurance, scheduling and billing administration, and website and marketing support. It then serves as a network for families looking for care centers to send their children.

Acumen America backed MyVillage’s $6 million seed funding round, alongside Jasmine Social Investments, Atlassian Foundation, Better Ventures, Kairos, Red Sea Ventures and City Lights Capital. The funding will help the company expand beyond Montana and Colorado, where it currently operates.
