Letter to the Editor: Franklin Childcare

Dear Editor:

I am writing to express my concern about the state of my daughters’ daycare. It is at risk of closing and I feel that’s only because no one knows it’s open!

Community Action For Improvement’s child care center is a wonderful place for children to LEARN, not just be babysat.

Letter-to-the-Editor-graphic1-300x250My daughter is three years old and can say her A-B-C’s, count to 30, and she knows her name, my name, her daddy’s name, where she lives, even our phone numbers!

She’s learning patterns, shapes, ratios, about other states as well as cultures! It concerns me Heard County kids might lose this place.

We have one other childcare center on the north end of heard county but that’s it! We need this to remain open; however, with a capacity of 25 and only six enrolled I know closing is inevitable.

Please help me keep my baby’s school open, if you need childcare in the Franklin area, please know the CAFI building on Old Field Road IS OPEN!!!

Please go by and check them out, it’s very reasonable and a great place for kids to learn.

    Wow, when this old man drives past that school I always think how cool it would be to go to school there. Hope the best for you all.

    I agree 100% with this. My Granddaughter also goes there. It is a great place and, we would really hate to see it close. They DO NOT get Federal or State funding since it is NOT under Head Start as of last year. They need our support to keep the doors open. They are now selling Candles as a fund raiser but,, they really need more Kids enrolled. PLEASE Heard County Citizens help us keep this worth while Business going!
