FUN Academy is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (formerly Department of Public Welfare) and we strictly adhere to the licensing regulation codes found in Title 55 Chapter 3270.
We are inspected thoroughly on an annual basis by a representative of the Department of Human Services. The result of this inspection is a license which is posted near the child sign-in area. This same representative also does several additional unannounced visits to our center to ensure that we are in good standing.
FUN Academy’s goal is to provide the best child care possible, and Keystone STARS provides Standards, Training, Assistance, Resources, and Supports (STARS) to help meet this goal.
STARS, establishes a quality rating system beginning with Start with STARS level, and progressing from a STAR 1 to a STAR 4 designation. Each STAR designation has its own research-based performance standards in three areas: staff education, the learning environment and administration.
FUN Academy is currently at a STARS 2 level, but is ready to submit the paperwork to apply for a STARS 3 level, and will begin to meet or exceed the criteria to apply for the STARS 4 level. A STAR 4 designation is similar to meeting accreditation standards set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
FUN Academy is also inspected annually by the PA Department of Education and U.S. Department of Agriculture in conjunction with the Child and Adult Care Food Program. The staff are trained in CPR/First Aid and Fire Safety. The kitchen staff are certified in ServSafe.
All staff are mandated by law and trained to recognize and report suspected child abuse through the Child Protective Services Law (CPSL). For more information: www.pacode.com.
Our Center has been trained in Fire Safety Procedures. Parents/guardians will be notified as soon as possible. Our fire evacuation plan is reviewed with the children and staff on a regular basis. Fire drills are practiced at 60-day intervals in which we evacuate the Center to the designated area which is the parking lot. If we would need to evacuate the center beyond the parking lot we will go to the Activity Center on our campus, Ashler Manor Drive, Muncy, PA and the phone number is 570-546-8797. This evacuation is also practiced on a monthly basis.
A copy of FUN Academy Emergency Operation Plan is revised and sent to the Lycoming Emergency Management Agency, local fire department annually. If you would like to review the Emergency Operation Plan, please see the Director.
In the event your child needs to be transported due to a medical emergency, if no other authorized person can be contacted and the need for transportation is essential, an ambulance will be called for transportation. A proper escort will accompany and remain with the child until a family member or emergency contact arrives.
