Fun Time Early Childhood Academy Expands to Four Locations

NAPLES, Fla. - April 2, 2024 - PRLog -- With a legacy spanning over 62 years, Fun Time Early Childhood Academy has been steadfastly serving economically disadvantaged children. We are pleased to announce that we have reached an asset transfer agreement involving the former Child's Path early learning center at 3144 Santa Barbara Blvd. in Naples. This marks a significant expansion for Fun Time Early Childhood Academy, which will now operate across four locations, including downtown Naples, Golden Gate, Poinciana and this new facility. The process was finalized on Friday, February 23, with operations commencing at the facility on Monday, February 26.

Kris Pfaehler, Chairman of the Fun Time Academy Board of Directors, emphasizes how this acquisition seamlessly aligns with Fun Time's mission to meet the needs of low-income families to access affordable, high-quality early education.

"With this acquisition, we reaffirm our commitment to serving the community by ensuring that every child, regardless of background, has access to exceptional early childhood education. We are thrilled to expand our reach and impact in Collier County," said Pfaehler.

Jessica Campbell, Executive Director of Fun Time Early Childhood Academy and a seasoned professional with over 20 years of experience in various roles within the Collier County public school system, sees this as an opportunity to further enhance the successful early learning approach of Fun Time Academy's educational programs for children in Collier County, thereby better preparing them for their future endeavors. In Collier County alone, there are 17,000 children under the age of five, with fewer than 1,000 accessing preschool programs. Due to the lack of access to quality childcare, there is a crisis in Collier County and much more work that needs to be done.

"We are excited to welcome the families and staff of Child's Path into the Fun Time family. This acquisition allows us to extend our reach and impact, providing more children with the foundation they need to thrive academically and socially," said Campbell.
