Dear CDC Families,


For 34 years, Heritage Child Development Center has served River Region families with excellence. What began as a vision of Heritage Baptist Church has grown to impact thousands of children and their families. God has been and continues to be good to Heritage CDC and our families.

We are living in unprecedented times that require the most difficult decisions. Every single family in our CDC and in our church is effected in some way by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are all making extreme sacrifices.

In light of these uncertain times, our pastor, administrator, director, and CDC committee have met to determine  a strategy for the future of Heritage CDC. We are continuing to hear from our health officials in both the private and public sector that the lack of social distancing present in a daycare environment is not healthy for adults or children as we attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. As a result, Heritage Child Development Center will be closed indefinitely.

Because we are funded exclusively by tuition, we simply do not have the financial reserves to continue. It is our hope to restart when this crisis resides. As far as we know now, those plans will include a re-enrollment strategy for your child. Given the uncertainty of finances, enrollment, and available faculty, we cannot guarantee your child will have a place at our CDC when we restart. Please suspend all tuition payments at this time. For those of you with credits on your account for services not yet rendered, we are working hard to get some or all of that money back to you as quickly as possible.

We never imagined that our CDC and our community would be in this position. We cannot adequately communicate to you how devastated we are to write this letter. Please remember our teachers. The state of Alabama does not allow churches and church employees to receive unemployment benefits. Our teachers are the ones who will suffer most during this time.

As always, thank you for trusting us with your children. It is our pleasure to serve your family. Know that we love you all and we are praying for you.


We continue to be blessed and very much so.

Dr. Teman Knight, Pastor

Jennifer Foster, CDC Administrator
