Our play-centered approach encourages growth, confidence and a joy of learning. Children engage in activities that promote choice, flexibility and individualized learning—important tools which research shows helps them learn best.Contact Us
Concordia Day teachers work closely with parents to ensure a solid and healthy home to school connection. Working together, especially when children need to make great developmental strides, ensures a smoother transition during these times of rapid growth.
Our directors and teachers evaluate each child’s progress to recognize individual academic and social needs.
Developmentally appropriate activities allow each child to develop at his or her own pace and promote confidence in a child’s ability to explore the world. Our play-based curriculum works to create the optimal environment for your child’s physical, social and academic development.
Meals are an important part of the day for any growing child. We serve organic lunches and healthy snacks so your children are ready to learn throughout the day.

Babies are born learning. Very young children are learning through play, the active exploration of their environment, and, most importantly, through interactions with the significant adults in their lives.
“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.”
O. Fred Donaldson, Ph.D and Author
Recent research confirms that the first five years are particularly important for the development of the child’s brain, and the first three years are the most critical in shaping the child’s brain architecture. Early experiences provide the base for the brain’s organizational development and functioning throughout life. They have a direct impact on how children develop learning skills as well as social and emotional abilities.
Our two toddlers attend Concordia and we couldn't be happier. Even before they started attending, one of their teachers came to our home with the Family Support Specialist to get to know all of us. To our knowledge, most other daycare centers don't go the extra mile in that way.Esther on Yelp
