Children of Faith Newsletter

Happy April friends! I can’t believe that it has been three weeks since we were last together. I can’t begin to tell you all how much you are missed and I pray that you all are healthy!


In an effort to stay in communication with our children, our staff has created on-line classrooms via Facebook, ZOOM, and emails. Please let us know if you are have not received an invitation from your child’s teacher. It is our hope that everyone is connected during this time!

Flu/ Cold Season:

Please help us keep everyone healthy by keeping well your child home if they are displaying any of the following: fever, diarrhea, drainage that’s not clear, or unidentifiable skin rashes. Children must symptom free for 24 hours without medication before returning.

Opportunities at COF:

We are searching for quality people to join our teaching team and substitute list. Contact the office for more details!

Carpool Reminder:
Rules exist to help us keep everyone as safe as possible. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE U-TURNS or TURN AROUND IN THE CARPOOL LINE! If time is of the essence, please come inside to pick up your son or daughter.

Nut Free Zone:

COF Preschool is a nut free zone. This includes all nuts, nut spreads, and butters!

Arrival/ Departure:

Hours of operation are 9am-1pm (doors will open at 8:55am). Pick-up is no later than 1pm.

*Late fees will be applicable


A Few Reminders:

  • Tuition is due by the 5th of each month.  Checks are made payable to FUMC.

  • A TEXT alert system for getting emergency information to you has been set up. To be a part of the text alert system, you need to:  Text PRESCHOOL to 43506.  This will automatically add you to my Preschool List.  You can add as many cell numbers as needed (mom, dad, grandmother, babysitter, etc) for those people that would need to know if we are delayed or have to close for an emergency.  I will still continue to post weather delays and closings on our website, Facebook page and WSOC TV’s website

  • Please do not park on the street side of the church in the afternoons, as we have a car rider line for two of our Fours classes.  Street congestion is heavy on the street with cars pulling in and out of the parking lot.

  • Drop Off is at 8:55am and Pick-Up is at 1:00pm. Late pick-up is subject to a fee.  Please see the Parent Handbook for the late fee schedule.

  • Please remember to keep a change of clothes for your child in their backpack.

  • Please write your child’s name on their items (sippy cups, lunch bags, etc).   

  • The best shoes for your child is closed-toe shoes.  We go on the playground every day, and mulch can cause splinters on bare feet.  Also, flip flops are hard to run in…and we want the children to be able to run around on the playground!

  • You can link our school to Harris Teeter VIC cards!  Our number is 8652.  You can either go online at www.harristeeter.com or sign up at your Harris Teeter store.


Thank you so much for sharing your children with us.  It is a blessing and a privilege to have your children with us this year.   Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


God's Blessings,

Sonya Russ
