Early Childhood Education

Safe & Nurturing Environment

We offer a safe playful environment where all curricular areas are uniquely woven throughout the day to ensure maximum learning potential.

Play-based Learning

Our teachers engage our youngest learners in high-quality play that invites learning and exploring skills that will stay with them as they continue their learning adventures.

Welcome to the Early Childhood Division!

Concordia's Early Childhood is a safe and nurturing environment that enhances the development of the whole-child. Our program provides educational experiences that are appropriate for the age and stage of young children’s development. Through teacher-directed and child-initiated learning experiences, we promote the development of a child’s self-regulation and executive-function skills and enhance language, cognition, and social competences. Concordia’s Early Childhood Division supports the development of knowledge and fosters positive, life-long learning habits. Our school division is filled with adventure, creativity, investigation and friendship. We provide an excellent, research-based learning environment where children learn about themselves, others, and the world around them – all in an atmosphere of love, care, and acceptance.

The National Association for the Education of Young Children states, “Play is an important vehicle for developing self-regulation as well as for promoting language, cognition, and social competence”. At Concordia, you’ll definitely see how we engage children in play that invites learning!

Developmentally Appropriate Focus

The Early Childhood Program invites learning and exploration of skills through high-quality play. Curricular areas typically found in an American-style education are approached with greater focus as students progress through the program.

Health & Safety

The safety of our students is of utmost importance; therefore, we take very seriously the security of each individual's physical and emotional health.

Family Partnerships

Parents and family members play a contributing role in each child’s learning and growth. Reciprocal learning exists when teachers and families communicate regularly and keep student success in mind.
