Weekday Preschool at Concord
Children here at Concord Baptist Church’s Weekday Preschool play a lot. However, it is productive play. They are meeting friends, playing with toys, looking at books, listening to music, singing, sharing, and learning to be away from mommy and daddy. We want your children to learn through “having fun”. Our goal at Concord Weekday Preschool is to have Christ - centered fun while learning age appropriate curriculum.
