Due to the current public health situation regarding COVID-19 in Florida, Fun Time Academy is remaining closed to in-person classroom school. We anticipate opening August 10, but will update our community on August 7.

A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

We are eager to welcome our children and families back to Fun Time Academy. When we re-open the school this Fall, there are a few changes we will implement to ensure everyone stays healthy and safe. Just a few of these new procedures are outlined below.

  • Parents will not be allowed in the building and we will have curbside drop-off’s and pick-ups. 
  • Staff and students will be evaluated for symptoms of illness, including temperature checks, upon entry. Anyone displaying symptoms will not be allowed to attend the school that day. 
  • When we re-open, the new school hours will be 7:30am – 5:00pm. Curbside drop-off will only be between 7:30am – 8:30am. Anyone arriving after 8:30am will not be allowed to attend school for that day.
  • Pick-up will only be between 3:30pm – 5:00pm (unless arrangements for appointments has been made prior).

Until we re-open, our office will be open from 10 am to 3 pm.

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

Fun Time Early Childhood Academy remains closed to in-person classrom school, given the current public health situation regarding COVID-19 in Florida, to protect the health and safety of teachers, parents, staff and students. We anticipate opening on August 10 for the full academic year, but this is contingent on the public health situation before August 10. We plan to update our community on August 7 with the status. Thank you to all the teachers, parents and students for continuing their engagement with online learning!
