Childcare Support

FLCDC’s mission is to foster an environment for the children and youth of the Mercy Drive corridor to promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and develop a sense of hope in the future. Through repeated failures in the classroom and the development of destructive habits, at-risk young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in putting their lives together. 

Only through personal relationships, within and outside the family, can a sense of individual responsibility and accountability be established that will develop within young people the commitment to follow the path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.

FLCDC recognizes that the growth, development and social success of our children is influenced by society, economics, environment, community and family. To fulfill our mission, the development of a nurturing environment for the children of the community requires support for families. FLCDC will continue to develop programs addressing family needs and will collaborate with local agencies that have developed and are providing such programs. ​

NOTE: We know that COVID-19 most commonly spreads between people who are in close contact through respiratory droplets or small particles produced when an infected person coughs, talks, or breathes. Growing evidence shows that droplets can remain suspended in the air and travel distances beyond six feet, according to the CDC. Indoor environments with poor ventilation increase the risk of transmission.

To prevent infection and to slow transmission of COVID-19, do the following:

  •  Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, or clean them with alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Maintain at least six feet distance between you and people coughing or sneezing.
  •  Avoid touching your face.4. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell.
  • Refrain from smoking and other activities that weaken the lungs.
  •  Practice physical distancing by avoiding unnecessary travel and staying away from large groups of people.

Future Leaders staff will be taking temperatures before child(s) enters the building. Should your child(s) show any signs of a Cold/Flu or COVID-19 symptoms and have a temperature, they will not be permitted in the daycare center.  We ask that you keep them home until they are well. We may ask for a doctors note upon request.
