Dear Fremont Kids Academy Families,
After much deliberation, and as a united team, Ms. Lily, Ms. Monique, and I have chosen the following course of action:
Closed until April 7th On April 7th we will reassess the need for a continued closure.
Roster Security We will hold all childcare spots until we are able to open at full capacity, regardless of payment. No child will lose their spot while we are temporarily closed. Once we re-open all tuition will be collected as normal.
Emergency Childcare If your family experiences an emergency and there is no one to care for your child, please contact us and we will work with you to meet your needs.
Sliding Scale Payments Ms. Dana, Ms. Monique, and Ms. Lily all depend solely upon the tuition payments from our clients. Each family's financial situation is unique and may be drastically different from one day to the next. Some families may be furloughed with no pay and some may be working from home with full pay. We are all in this crisis together and we ask that you make a tuition payment based on your ability to do so. We are not asking for any proof of income or other information. We just ask that you pay as much of your child's tuition as you can during this closure.
Helpful Hint: Many financial institutions are expanding their forbearance policies right now - it may be very beneficial for you to seek a deferral on your largest expenses.
Resources I have set up a blog page for our families to post their needs and resources during this unpredictable time. If you have a surplus of any resources that someone may need, please post it in the comments on this blog so that we can work as a village to meet the needs of all of our Fremont Kids Academy families. If you need something please post it so that we can help you provide for your family. Resources - COVID -19 Needs and Wants
Resources - COVID -19 Needs and Wants Parents interact with staff about student's Projects.
We are hoping that all of our families are healthy and happy and enjoying time with their children.
Take care, and hug those babies for us!

1. Comfortable Home Environment
Children enjoy a nurturing environment complete with all the comforts of home. Separating from family members can be difficult on children. Finding familiar items such as couches, stuffed animals, toys, and loving arms help children make a smooth transition from family to care provider each day.
2. Customized Kindergarten Readiness Curriculum
Through our relationships with the community, Fremont Kid's Academy offers preschool curriculum geared toward kindergarten readiness for each local elementary school. Children have an opportunity to be exposed to concepts and ideas they will encounter in their kindergarten classrooms in the future.
3. Peace of Mind for Parents
Parental peace of mind is one of the most important aspects of our program. We offer state of the art webcams through a secure server that gives parents the opportunity to observe the program and ensure the happiness of their children. Our blog page allows parents to view the materials and projects that the students are working on and communication between parents and staff is emphasized on a regular basis. We use multiple methods of communication including email, text, phone, bulletin boards, newsletters, and good old face to face conversations to ensure that parents know what is happening for their children.
