We announced on Friday that our Kids FACtory childcare will be open for members while parents are working out beginning May 4, 2020. In Governor Hutchinson’s recent release, regarding reopening health clubs during our Phase One economic rebuild, there was no indication that child care departments in gyms would be required to remain closed.
Fox News however, reported that child care departments within gyms are to remain closed in gyms. Due to this confusion, we have decided to err on side of safety and delay our opening of the the Kids FACtory childcare until we receive clarification from the Arkansas Health Department.
On a much brighter note, it was reported, last week, by Arkansas State University, Division of Childhood Services, out of 1,061 open childcare facilities in Arkansas, there have been zero reported positive cases of COVID-19 in the open childcare facilities.
For this reason, we will be reopening our licensed Jumpstart preschool tomorrow, May 4, 2020 and we will be restarting our licensed Afterschool Club, beginning May 11, 2020. 12:30 – 6:30 PM for school age children, ages 5-12 years old.
We will notify you via email and post on our website https://fayac.com/recent-news page as soon as we have an update regarding childcare for your kids while you are working out.
