Our Preschool Program
Concordia’s Preschool program has been a vibrant and integral part of the Northeast Seattle area for many years.
We offer half or full-day classes for children ages 3 through 5 years and are fully licensed by DCYF of WA State. With our dedicated, experienced, and nurturing staff, we are blessed to serve many families.
Zoo-phonics is used in all three classes to help students gain prereading skills. Students have Physical Education and Music each week taught by specialist teachers.
More details on the curriculum are provided in class descriptions.
