The Fricchione Early Learning Center at Marywood University welcomed its early learners back to campus in combination with the University’s spring semester this past week. As a result of the pandemic, and for the safety of staff, children, and their families, the Fricchione Early Learning Center closed during the spring of 2020 and has remained closed throughout the fall semester.
With the help of the CARES Act Covid-19 relief, The Fricchione Early Learning Center was able to make upgrades to the facility including new flooring, new front doors, wireless upgrades, and Samsung tablets for all the classrooms.
Natalie Lucas, Fricchione Center director, said, “We’re so excited to be welcoming our early learners back to campus. We’ve been preparing to welcome them back since the closing of the center in the spring of 2020, due to the pandemic. We’re also very excited as we look forward to celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Fricchione Center in September 2021.”
Nearly 20 students, ages 8 weeks to pre-K, have registered for the reopening, and six highly qualified staff members, all of whom are certified in CPR/First Aid, are on hand to ensure that all of the children’s needs are met. The Fricchione Early Learning Center at Marywood University is a great place for kids to learn and grow in a safe, clean, interactive environment. The Center is open to all clients in the community, not just those individuals affiliated with Marywood and other IHM-sponsored institutions.
