Concord’s legacy of providing quality early childhood education is proven. The Center has offered childcare services for much of our history, and meaningful developmental opportunities are a key component of our mission.

Kids smiling in a classroom

Since 2016, 100% of graduating students have tested “kindergarten ready.”

Concord offers a full-day early learning program for near-Southside children ages to 3-5 years. It is a nationally accredited, Paths to Quality IV program with lessons that align with Indiana’s early learning standards. Our students thrive in a compassionate, age-appropriate environment.  Student learning is highly self-directed yet guided by caring, qualified staff and a standardized curriculum, the Creative Curriculum.

Weekly tuition is assessed and calculated on a sliding scale based on household income. Through a variety of private and public support, all children receive scholarship assistance. Concord accepts CCDF and On My Way Pre-K vouchers.

Early learning students are served breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks daily.

The Early Childhood Education Program hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Formal learning occurs between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. All families are strongly encouraged to attend regularly during instructional time so to take advantage of the early learning opportunities. Per state licensing, the maximum amount of time that children can be in our care is 10 hours per day.
