Field trips

Transportation for the outside trips is either bus or parents drivers. A annual fee paid at the beginning of the school year covers the cost of these programs. 

Special Programs 
In addition to regular classroom activities, students attend music/creative movement and physical education classes. Classes also attend chapel bi-monthly. Winter holiday shows and spring concerts are also performed. We also offer classes presented by outside providers, such as soccer, Spanish, yoga, karate, and dance.  These classes are offered once a week and run in a 10 or 12 - week session.  A separate fee is assessed for these programs.

Nut-Free
Because of the increased incidents of peanut and tree-nut allergies in young children, Concordia Preschool is a peanut and tree-nut free zone!  Lunches and  classroom treats must be nut-free.  Click here for a list of foods with hidden peanuts, and here are some sites with good peanut-free alternatives for lunch!
