Success Academy COVID-19 Update

As many of you know, these last few days have been difficult at best and many of us are faced with uncertainty and fear. Albemarle Alliance for Children and Families, Inc. along with many community partners and stakeholders have been meeting daily as we navigate this unprecedented territory. Today, we met with our staff and leadership from Success Academy and we have made the tough decision to close the center until March 31, 2020.

This decision was not reached without much thought and consideration, on both the state and local level. Today, we called our parents and families and asked what their needs are and if they needed child care at the present time or if they have decided to practice “social distancing” and stay home for the next few weeks. Many of our families indicated that they would not utilize care even if we decided to remain open. We have consulted our state NC Prek office, our child care licensing consultants, The North Carolina Partnership for Children, other child care programs in the area and many other partners. Today we were also told that CHKD, a major local hospital has recommended that children not be in child care programs but remain home instead.

We want to thank everyone who has checked in with us and offered to help. Our staff is still working diligently to clean, sanitize and prepare for our children to be back with us when the time is right for them to do so. A very special thank you to NC Softwash, owned by Craig and Melissa Lawrance who offered to wash and sanitize our playground and equipment at Success Academy. Thank you so much to their employees, Malcoom and Marquis who showed up only hours after we closed to get the job done.

Together, we will get through this crisis and continue to build relationships and programs in our counties and communities. Thank you to our parents who have been so supportive as we are faced with hard decisions. We will reassess the recommendations over the remainder of March and will provide updates in a timely manner. Stay safe and well. If you need immediate assistance regarding Success Academy, please contact our Director, Ms. Tabitha Simpson at or call our main office at 252-333-1233. We will continue to respond to your messages via email or phone.
