Early Childhood Enrichment
Concordia’s Early Childhood Summer Enrichment Program is held at beautiful Stein Hall. With its grand front porch, beautiful rooms and bucolic setting, Stein Hall is the perfect environment for your child to make an easy transition from home to program where they will make new friends, acquire new skills, discover new concepts and prepare themselves for a successful school year in Preschool or Kindergarten.
Our program addresses important aspects of the school experience in order to build more confident and outgoing children who learn to interact and socialize with peers and adults, as well as become comfortable separating from their parents or caregivers. The program is designed to develop and improve your child’s fine and gross motor skills which are essential during the school year activities. With these goals in mind, our program employs experienced, dedicated teachers and mature, energetic counselors who help provide a fun and safe summer program experience comprised of four exciting classes: Music, Art, Science and Twinkle Fingers, a fine-motor skills class. The children also enjoy free-play time on the beautiful front lawn of Stein Hall. Come join us for a unique summer program experience!

It was so nice, we are doing it twice. Back by popular demand, we are continuing our wondrous journey through more of our storybook, fairy tale and nursery rhyme favorites. This session is chock full of fun and amazing arts, crafts, dance, music and science projects. Make sure you wear your bathing suits because this time we are going to swim with Ariel and the mermaids and visit Peter Pan in our homemade boat. Once we come ashore, we’ll walk through the jungle and listen for the boy whose best friend is a bear and sing silly songs. Keep your eyes open for the matching mittens that the three little kittens lost and for the cat who wears boots and a hat. Our journey will end at the castle’s ball but we all must remember to leave by midnight? More/Register
