Meet The Staff
Bernice Fallone - Owner/Director
My name is Bernice Fallone, I am the Owner and Director of Fallone’s Funtime Center and Fallone’s Recreational Hangout School-age Center. I have owned and directed Fallone’s for twenty one years and have worked in child care for about thirty years. I have a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and Childcare Administration and Business Management Degree as well. I love working with children and being able to help them develop and watch them grow.
Our program here at Fallone’s follows an Early Childhood Curriculum, in which children learn by exploration through play. The program is hands on for the children allowing them to use their own creativity and senses to explore. Fallone’s is very family oriented; a child’s home away from home is how parent’s best describe our center. Children come first at our center and we pride ourselves in striving to provide the best, possible childcare for the children.
Staff are trained in CPR/First Aid as well as having training in other child related topics that are state required. Our teachers also have experience working with children and are screened through N.Y. State.
We offer Preschool and Pre-K classrooms along with Infants through School-age. Children ages 13-15 years old also have a place here at Fallone’s with our Counselor in Training Program. Fallone’s offers Gym time for all age groups, a soccer-turf room, rock climbing room and a basketball room. We have a full sized kitchen as well as our kitchen for lunches. The children enjoy cooking and baking with their classrooms in our full size kitchen.
Field trips and in-services are offered for ages 5-15 years old in our school-age program to expose the children to the many learning environments of life. We have a 65 passenger bus, driven by an experienced school bus driver.
As the Director, I am always on site and travel on all of the field trips. Experienced staff, safe, and fun filled days are waiting here at Fallone’s, so come check us out or call for information at 585-594-2552 and we’ll be happy to set up a tour.
Michael Demlein - School Age Director
My name is Michael Demlein, and I am the School Age Director at Fallone's Funtime Center and Recreational Hangout. I am a graduate of the State University of New York College at Brockport where I received my B.S. and M.S. Ed in physical education, and I am also a former certified personal trainer. I have several years of teaching experience in numerous districts, including Churchville-Chili. During that time I instructed physical education classes for grades PreK-12 focusing on skill themes and movement concepts, project adventure, swimming, individual/team sports focusing on skill acquisition, game concepts, rules and strategies, as well as lifelong activities and fitness units.

As the School Age Director, it is my ambition to introduce, improve and demonstrate the tools that children will need to be successful, happy and healthy individuals as they go through life. We are always striving to meet the needs, and wants of all of our families. I find it absolutely necessary that we keep learning, and improving yearly, monthly and daily on what we do here. It is my motto that "once we stop learning, we stop growing." It's my passion to make sure that the children here at Fallone's never stop growing.
