Like so many other retail businesses across the United States, FlynnO’Hara Uniforms is heading into peak season under-staffed.

We are so very pleased to announce the SFACA will open a free 3K program this September 2021! This program is fully funded by the NYC Board of Education and allows us to offer a totally free 3K program for children born in 2018.
When combined with our current PreK For All 4 year old program, our families have the wonderful opportunity to enjoy 2 years of free education.
What a great way to start off your child’s education experience here at SFACA!
