You can now contact your child's teacher directly by email. Each classroom has their own email address with the class name @fccedmond.org. So, for example, All Stars parents can email email@example.com with non-emergent questions or concerns and the teacher will respond the same day. From time to time, teachers are reassigned to different classrooms so this is a great way to ensure parents are able to reach their child's current leaders at any time. Please note that a response may not be sent immediately as the teachers are actively caring for their students. If you have an urgent or immediate need, please call the Center office at 405.341.2626 and our office staff will assist you.
Also, in an effort to help keep parents up to date on important events at the Child Care Center, we will be sending home quarterly calendars with a list of center closings, class party days, Mother's Day Out closures, Picture Days and much more. Watch for the quarterly calendar to go home with your child starting this month.
Finally, if you have experienced difficulty finding a place to park during drop off and pick up, please stop by the Child Care Center office and request a church parking permit to place on your windshield. All parents and staff are welcome to park in the church lot, however, we do place warning stickers on cars without permits so you are strongly encouraged to pick up a permit even if you haven't had difficulty parking and want to be prepared for the possibility.

Happy Fall Y’all!
This is Jennifer Humphrey, Communications & Children’s Director at First Christian Church. I work closely with the Child Care Center, partnering with volunteers on Thursdays to bring the stories of Jesus to your children through the Children Worship & Wonder program.
I wanted to extend a special invitation for all Child Care Center families to join with First Christian Church at our "Trunk or Treat" event on Sunday, October 28 from 5-7pm. Children can dress up and go "trick or treating" here at First Christian Church in the East Parking Lot. We will also have fun games to play on the lawn. We are asking everyone to bring a canned food item (or two!) for a donation to the Edmond HOPE Center. Get those costumes ready! We hope to see you there!
