LIU Brooklyn Students’ Children Can Have FUN After School


Sarah DeCamp,Associate Director of Public Relations

FUNLIU Brooklyn Family University (FUN) After School and Evening Program offers after-school care for children of income-eligible LIU Brooklyn students, giving these parents more time to earn their degrees. FUN is an educational enrichment program with a creative arts focus for children in first through seventh grades.

In addition to the FUN program, the university is now offering a limited number of childcare subsidies for LIU Brooklyn students with children between the ages of 2 to 5 years old, at Duffield Children’s Center, located near the campus. Grant amounts for this program depend on income and are available year-round to eligible enrolled students.

The FUN Program is open to LIU Brooklyn students who are currently enrolled and meet financial eligibility requirements. The cost of the program is on a sliding scale from $25-$100 per family, per semester. The program can accommodate 30 children each semester and placement is made on a first-come, first-served basis after eligibility review, approval, payment, and orientation attendance.

In the fall and spring semesters, FUN is available four days a week; Monday through Thursday; from 3:15 to 8:30 p.m. The FUN program takes place at the School of Education’s Learning Center for Educators and Families (LCEF), where children need to be dropped off and picked up. Children are provided with a healthy snack and dinner.

“We are proud to provide this service to our hard-working students at LIU Brooklyn,” said Guin Ellsworth, director, FUN After School Program. “The FUN Program allows our students to focus on their studies and reach their goals to earn their degree.”
