Children of Faith Newsletter

Welcome to our 2020-2021 school year!

Thank you to all who have contributed in stocking our preschool with those “difficult” to find items. Every donation,

no matter how big or small, is greatly appreciated!

Children of Faith welcomes Ms. Fren’Tres, Ms. Jamie, and Mrs. Christen to our team! They have been valuable assets to our team already and we are excited to work with them moving forward. I would also like to publicly thank Mrs. Robin for filling in with Ms. Cat. She is always there when we need her!

COF needs updated forms on each child, every year. Forms were sent via email. If you haven’t done so, please submit/update all forms and turn them in to your child’s teacher asap. Current immunization/ medical forms must be received within one month (October 8th of you child’s start date.

Look for us on Facebook @ Children of Faith Preschool- Indian Trail, NC.

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 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
