Tracy List, Executive Director

FranDelJA was founded by two sisters and named after the children that they loved most in life, so in its most simple definition, FranDelJA means family!


The FranDelJA that I see is a place where there are words, letters, pictures, and things that children recognize on the walls; where there is a schedule that enables the children to predict and know what's going to happen next, where they feel welcomed every single day.

The FranDelJA that I see is a place where children know what the boundaries are, but have a safe, warm, and inviting environment where they’re not afraid to take risks, make mistakes, and learn from those mistakes. [Full Article]

The parent is the first and primary teacher in every child’s life. Therefore, at FranDelJA, we strive to develop mutually supportive partnerships between families and our programs.

We believe that a child’s success is directly correlated to the success of the parent/guardian, so we have made it our goal to include supporting and encouraging families as a part of that partnership.

In a mutually supportive partnership, parents can give as well as receive. Families become decision makers in a program that is geared to support their child and their parenting skills.

Working together we can support children to develop a life-long love for learning!

Sisters, Gladys Harris and Sandra Young, managed to ignite the imagination of the various community leaders who also saw the need for high-quality programs in our community.
