A message from the Director

” These children are our future and I can’t think of a better investment.  Hard working, low-income families deserve affordable early learning education for their children.

It is my mission to make sure that every child who attends Fun Time leaves for Kindergarten ready to read and ready to learn! ” Barbara Tyrrell

Giving Kids a Core Education

Fun Time has always been dedicated to providing a quality education to low-income working families in Naples and is ranked among the top preschools in Florida.

Books for Collier Kids

To ensure that all Fun Time children have books in their homes, Books for Collier Kids selects age-appropriate brand-new books donating them to our four-year-olds. These books are part of classroom lessons and are then taken home to be shared with the families.

We Provide Healthy Meals

Our children are served a nutritious family-style breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack daily. All Fun Time menus exceed the daily nutritional requirements of the national food program.

OUR MISSION

To provide safe, quality, affordable education and care for children and parents from low-income working families and to prepare the children for kindergarten, ready to read and ready to learn!

HELPING OUR KIDS

The 96 students enrolled at Fun Time come from low-income working families. Your donation helps to bridge the gap between the parent’s sliding-scale payment and the unfunded $8,200 cost this year of educating and caring for each student:

  • $100 provides materials for one classroom for one month
  • $250 provides 16 hours of tutoring to one child
  • $700 provides tuition assistance for one child for one month
  • $1,400 provides tuition assistance for two children for one month

You work in paradise, but can you afford to live here? People who work in sectors that make up more than 50 percent of all jobs in Collier County are at risk of being cost-burdened. Find out what’s being done to overcome the housing affordability challenges in our community.
