Concordia Day early learning is specially designed to meet the changing needs of children and their families. We serve children 6 weeks through 3 years old in Chicago’s vibrant Ravenswood community. Providing a warm and positive environment, our caring teachers spend many hours cuddling, nurturing and talking with children; this instills trust and creates a healthy learning setting for movement, exploration and play.

Our child-centered curriculum focuses on each developmental stage. We use age appropriate activities, such as story time, music, simple games, and movement, all which support physical, language, cognitive, social and emotional development. We work closely with parents and the community, all becoming a part of the Concordia Day family, all to support the growth of our future leaders.
