Redefining early learning

Our programs are designed to meet you and your child where you need us, when you need us

A foundation for learning that begins with play

“Play” doesn’t mean your child’s development is left to chance. At Concordia, play is purposeful!

Experienced teachers connect your child’s curiosity with fun activities that support cognitive, social, and physical development.

A healthy and safe learning environment

Entrusting your child to our care is a decision made easier by the security and safety built into every facet of Concordia

My son absolutely loves it! He NEVER wants to leave when I arrive.

Jasmine on Yelp

Every time I drop her off, I feel that she's safe, eating nutritious meals and snacks, is getting a good education and is interacting with the other children.

Mel on Yelp

I cannot say enough good things about our daughter's home-away-from-home. We highly recommend Concordia for any family. This brand new facility is set up thoughtfully for all of the children that attend. The teachers and staff are incredible! Our 16-month old says all of her teachers' names with a smile on her face when we ask if she's ready to go to "school."

Carl on Yelp

Our son has been a Concordia kid for the last eight months, and we could not be happier. His days are filled with activity, his teachers seem genuinely invested in his development, and the management team is accessible and responsive whenever we have a question or concern.

Artie on Yelp

We love how open and sunny the facility is. We were thrilled with the yard and gym. The mission of Concordia is amazing.
