FCSA Executive Director Retiring at the End of 2020

Fauntleroy Community Service Agency (FCSA) Executive Director Kim Sheridan has announced that she will be retiring at the end of 2020 after four decades of leading the nonprofit organization, which owns and operates the Fauntleroy Children’s Center and the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse. Kim started with the organization in 1978 as a substitute teacher and assumed the Executive Director position in 1980. She has built something very special in Fauntleroy. Through her dedication and love for what she does, FCC has become a place beloved by generations of children, parents, and teachers.

Established in 1977 by Dr. Jack Pierce and Roberta Weeks, the nonprofit FCSA was formed with the simple goal of providing community services for the neighborhood. An initial community survey revealed a need for quality affordable full time childcare for working parents, and the childcare center now known as the Fauntleroy Children’s Center (FCC) was born. FCC relocated to the former Fauntleroy Elementary School in 1980, and in 2010 backed by community support and a state grant, the agency assumed ownership of the building which is now known as the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse. Today, the FCC serves local families with children ranging from newborn to 12 years and the Schoolhouse is home to several small businesses and facilitates a growing slate of community programming for all ages. Like many local agencies, the FCSA has been challenged by the public health crisis brought on by COVID-19. While it has been challenging, we are proud that we have continued to support our families, staff, and tenants. As we wish Kim all the best for her next chapter, the FCSA board also looks to a bright future for the Fauntleroy Children’s Center and the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse. In preparation for the upcoming transition in leadership this December, we are embarking on a search for a new Executive Director who will lead the day-to-day operations of the childcare center and Schoolhouse facility.

If you or someone you know is an experienced childcare leader who might be a good fit for this position, please encourage them to apply.
