December 2021 After-School Calendar

After-School COVID POLICY (August 6, 2021)
COVID POLICY – Due to the recent rise in COVID, all teachers and children will be required to wear a mask at all times through September 10.  We are working with the MS Department of Health and Clinton Public Schools in an effort to provide the safest environment possible and coordinate our COVID and quarantine policies.  All field trips and large-group activities have been temporarily suspended.    Also, our facilities remain on lockdown, so parents will be allowed inside the building by appointment only (with a mask).  We will continue to check for symptoms of COVID each day and anyone with any symptom will not be allowed entry.    Quarantine policies have been updated to the following: Children and staff will be required to quarantine for a period of 10 days if exposed to someone who tests positive, OR if someone in their household tests positive.  Exposure is now defined as being within 3 feet for a period of 15 minutes or more WITH A MASK (or 6 feet without a mask).  Our increased use of masks and 3 feet social distancing should greatly reduce quarantines and allow our children and staff to remain in school and at Funtime.     Due to August heat,  we will limit outdoor play time and increase indoor gross-motor activities in small groups while the mask policy is in effect through September 10, 2021.  Our COVID policy may be changed at any time as CDC and MSDH guidelines are updated, and in accordance with local mandates. 

Funtime is a certified CCAIR site!

Funtime is the only local childcare center to meet the requirements for CCAIR certification.  We immediately developed and implemented a plan for safe operation at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.  We also assisted the Mississippi Department of Health in developing safe operation guidelines for childcare centers throughout the state.  Funtime has gained national recognition through Childcare Aware, Good Morning America, and CNN for our leadership role in providing safe childcare throughout the pandemic.
