Testimonials

Jasmine Smith

Fun Time Academy has been a blessing to my family. I’m not sure if there’s any other learning center that could provide the training, education, excitement, and passion that Fun Time does. My daughter’s vocabulary is constantly expanding. Daily, I’m impressed with how she’s able to articulate what she’s learning…even down to the different foods she eats. A mother’s biggest concern is the safety and wellbeing of their child when they are away from each other. It’s comforting that she doesn’t cry when we take her to school, but instead she cries to stay at school because of how much she enjoys her friends and teachers. And since we are on the topic of teachers, I truly value and celebrate the care and attention they provide. It’s beyond educational fundamentals for them. They instill positive hygiene habits and behavior norms that will stay with my child forever. Because of their open communication and heart for my daughter, I’m able to be a better parent at home. Thank you, Fun Time Academy, for all you do and the household resources you provide. Because of you, my family’s future is even brighter.

Fun Time Academy has been like a family for me. Since my daughter started attending here, I have noticed a huge improvement in social-emotional, physical, language, literacy, and math skills, plus she loves coming here every day.

All teachers are professionals who love and have passion for their career; they really care about early childhood education and their students. The atmosphere of this school is very nice, you can feel it from the moment you enter from the main door. 

Children have breakfast, lunch, and a snack every day, they go out twice a day to the playground which is shaded, and the floor is soft in case they fall down. 

I’m so happy that my daughter is attending this school. I feel very proud of what she had learned here in a short period of time.
