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.

Our students benefit from the breadth of services provided—dental care, home-style cooked meals, swim lessons, violin lessons, art, theater and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math). Our exceptional staff and our 40 volunteer tutors give generously of their time to help our wonderful kids.

Research Shows the Importance and Paradox of Early Childhood Care and Education

~Tina Kauh & Krista Scott, Senior Program Officers, Robert Woods Johnson Foundation,10/8/20

“Our nation’s health depends on the health of our children and the early childhood care and education (ECCE) providers that nurture them. As America recovers from the pandemic and reopens the economy, rebuilding our ECCE system in a way that prioritizes equity and wellbeing is critical. We cannot reopen and recover without a stable and affordable child care system.” Read more . . .

Fun Time Early Childhood Academy is part of the solution to this problem. We provide the highestquality education environment, for a fullday, five days/week. Financial support from individual giving, grants, and limited state aid allows us to bridge the wide gap between the cost of the education and what our working parents can afford. We’re doing this in the heart of Naples, despite the decreasing supply of early childhood education opportunities throughout the US.#FunTimeStrong#FunTimeAcademy
