FALC Silver Anniversary: Investing in Our Future, One Child at a Time
This year, the Child Care Corporation is celebrating 25 years of the Future of America Learning Center (FALC). Since the day it opened on October 3, 1993, FALC has provided nearly 9,000 children of 1199SEIU members and the community with the opportunity to build and enhance their physical, emotional, cognitive and cultural growth. Our program serves children ages 18 months to 5 years, culminating in a Universal Pre-K ceremony each year. This summer, we celebrated 46 students graduating from the program. The ceremony was complete with song and dance performances, well wishes from instructors and heartfelt testimonials from parents about FALC’s nurturing environment.
FALC also holds other events throughout the year, including an annual Father’s Day breakfast, community outreach activities and educational field trips to museums around New York City. The annual FALC Science Fair is an exciting opportunity for students to take part in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) projects. Students are able to learn the value of science while expressing their creativity among peers, teachers and family.
