Attention CLC Families: 

In light of the most recent report of a local COVID-19 diagnosis and the certainty of more to come we have made the tough decision to be closed effective March 23 through April 3.  This was a gut wrenching decision for me, the committee and church personnel as we realize the burden this may cause to our families.  Especially those families we have been serving this week. With COVID-19 in our area coupled with the reality of serving so few children- ultimately, the benefit of our service does not outweigh the risk at this present time.

Our committee and church personnel have put a lot of thought and preparation into determining an April tuition that makes up for tuition loss but allows for the program to maintain quality and retain our staff.   Thus, our decision is to offer a $250 discount per tuition rate on April tuition and a $100 discount on afterschool tuition.  The sibling discount will be $15 per child.  April tuition will be due 5 business days after we reopen.   

I realize some of you may not be back to work by April 6th and may not need our care in April and even the months that follow. However, to retain your spot this tuition is due regardless of attendance.  If worsening circumstances arise and we cannot reopen on the 6th further discounts will be evaluated and accessed in May. 

Again, I am sorry for the burden this places on you and our community but I am hopeful that our participation to close and isolate at home will make an impact on the overall health of Oxford and Lafayette County.  We already miss the busyness and the bright life that your children bring to North Oxford during the week day.  We are hopeful for a wonderful celebration when we welcome everyone back on the April 6.  At CLC we are a family, so from my family to your family we love you and we will pray daily for everyone’s good health and protection of this virus. 

Kindest regards,


Gwenda Brown
