Message to Parents


Dear CDO Families,

I've often heard it said that children are our future. I disagree. Children are our present. In the miracle of each birth, we see a glimpse into the face of God. Jesus said, "let the little children come to me." Surely, he was teaching us that in our relationships with our children, we understand more deeply our relationships as God's children.

We at St. Charles U.M.C., appreciate the unique gift that is your child. Caring for him or her is a joy and an honor. It is our goal to help each child become the person he or she was gifted to be. Not insignificantly, it is also our goal to learn from each child who enters these doors, as each one represents a gift from God.

I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you…and your children. God has many blessings in store for us. I can't wait to see the adventure unfold!

Thank you for entrusting your child with us.
