I cannot say enough good things about our daughter's home-away-from-home. We highly recommend Concordia Day 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.

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