About Our Preschool Program:
The purpose of Concord Preschool and Childcare is to provide a quality program for all of the enrolled children. The teachers create an environment in which each child is free to play, learn, experiment and grow at his/her own rate. Appropriate actions and behavior will be encouraged and developed through daily living in a Christian atmosphere with skillful, loving staff members.
