Teacher Feature – Cester Williams
"It all goes back to when Fun Time was in the yellow trailer," Cester Williams remembers fondly. Hired in 1984, she is Fun Time's longest serving employee! Now a classroom teacher in Room 1, Ms. Cester has loved caring for children since she herself was young,...
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.
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!
FUN TIME ACADEMY AT POINCIANA
Address: 2825 Airport-Pulling Rd, Naples, FL 34105
Marc started attending Fun Time Early Childhood Academy in August after being referred to our school through the Head Start program. Although Sabine, Marc’s mom, had the option of a different location closer to her home, she chose Fun Time after a tour and learning of all the parent events we had to offer and community resources we could connect her with. She loved our philosophy regarding family involvement and could not wait to be a part of the Fun Time family.
