About Us

Pre-K, Preschool and Daycare

Forever Kids Academy is proudly owned and operated by a military veteran family. The school has been in business since 2001 and has grown thanks to supportive families that have either worked for us or entrusted the care and education of their children to us. The staff at Forever Kids Academy is proud to always offer the best of ourselves of plant the seed for and nurture the love of learning that is so crucial for academic success.

Our Story

Forever Kids is a family owned and run daycare, preschool and after school center. Late in 2001 Patrcia Bunn, after decades managing multiple daycare businesses, decided to open her own daycare, preschool, and after school center in Raeford, North Carolina. With the help of her immediate family, as well as the newly formed Forever Kids family, she has successfully taken Forever Kids Preschool and Daycare from one 3-classroom sized building to a much larger 10-classroom building and After School Gym. More recently in July 2015 she opened a second center further in the heart of Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Meet The Family

The Bunn family works together in one solid effort to make the best daycare in the region. Below you can meet the family that makes it all happen and learn about how they make it happen.
