More than Early Childhood

Concordia Day is the cornerstone early childhood service of Concordia Place.

Concordia Day is a cornerstone service of Concordia Place, a vibrant, local nonprofit with a vision that everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full potential. As a result, when you enroll at Concordia Day, you and your child are part of something bigger than just child care.

Concordia Place provides opportunity for education, growth, and development for  young children, youth, teens, and their families. With a focus on proactive solutions to key social needs, it impacts more than 800 people every year.

Nearly 40 years ago, Concordia Place was started as an after school program by Concordia Lutheran Church (ELCA) to serve people beyond the walls of its members. Since then, Concordia Place has continually adapted to meet growing and changing community needs and now has four centers in Chicago.

It's a larger daycare facility, but what we enjoy about Concordia Day is that it always feels like a really well run 'mom & pop' type of organization- which is a positive trait for us. Also, we value the mission of Concordia Place and enjoy that our tuition at CD helps support the larger non-profit.
