Our vision at Funtime After-school is to provide a premium level of care for children ages six weeks through twelve years, which meets the safety, nutritional, physical, developmental, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of the children we serve.
Funtime After-School offers premium, year-round, full service, Christian based, childcare for school-age (5-12) children. We are a fully licensed childcare facility by the Mississippi State Department of Health (license # 24C4PAS-1973). Our teachers are well qualified and trained in child and classroom management, and only positive discipline techniques are used. Physical, social, academic, and spiritual development all in a safe, structured environment, that’s the Funtime way!

Our After-School facility was expanded and totally renovated in 2013. It is just over 14,000 square feet in size and is the product of many years of experience, research, and design. A large wooden floor provides the perfect place, rain or shine, for skating and endless indoor games and activities! Our large seating areas allow snacks, lunch, and homework to flow smoothly, and provide excellent areas for small group activities.
Safety is a priority
Safety has been designed into every aspect of our facilities, and our large, clean restrooms are second to none. Magnetic locks on our doors allow access only to our enrolled children and staff during childcare hours. The building is constructed of non-combustible materials with an all-steel frame and metal studs, brick and metal exterior, and heavy gauge metal roof. We have also added a fire sprinkler system, which protects the entire building. We have made every effort to construct our building strong enough to stand up to any storm and to be virtually fire-proof. Our After-School playground consist of a large equipment area with slides and swings, all of which meet or exceed Health Department Playground Safety Guidelines.
Large sports field and covered outdoor play area
We also have a large field perfect for soccer, kickball, football, and a variety of running games. Our playground is regularly treated, by professionals, for ants, poison ivy, and other outdoor undesirables. A large, covered canopy with ceiling fans provides a cool outdoor area for hot days!
