A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Fun Time Ends 2020 on a High Note

In spite of all of the changes and challenges related to the COVID-19, I am happy to report that Fun Time Early Childhood Academy ended the year with zero outbreaks in the school and in compliance with all CDC guidelines without incident.

The children wore their masks without complaints, practiced social distancing and worked very hard to accomplish all of the benchmarks associated with the requirements of our assessment guidelines.

We also plan to continue to be vigilant in terms of following the recommendations of specialists in the field of Infectious disease.

Please know how much we appreciate all of the parent support and working with us on managing the pick-up and drop-off process; picking up children who were coughing , sneezing, or just not feeling well.

We also appreciate the fact that the parents kept their child(ren) home if someone in their circle of friends and family tested positive for the virus.

We are anticipating that all of our 96 children will return on January 4th and we are looking forward to a fantastic 2021!

Barbara Tyrrell

Executive Director

    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

    The education the children receive here at Fun Time Academy is partially funded by NCEF!  NCEF is committed to the children in our community and makes a huge impact.  Below is their video highlighting the achievements of the beneficiaries and all they have accomplished. You’ll see our superstar Clarens at 12:45 & 23:30.  Great things await this young man . . . all thanks to FTA, NCEF, and YOU!
