Welcome to The Children’s Courtyard in Concord, NC! I am Ms. Kristen, the Center Director and I'm excited to show you why I absolutely love this school. We offer programs for Infant Care, Toddlers, Preschool programs for two and three-year-old's, Pre-K, and School-Agers.
We have technology in our Preschool, Pre-K and School-Age classrooms with educational apps and learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math. Our teachers participate in various training opportunities throughout the year to stay current in the field of early childhood education. They are all passionate about the care and education of young children. We also have safety captains that are ever mindful of proactive safe behaviors and ensuring safe environments, like enforcing our strict requirements for food safety and materials in the classrooms.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
Please stop by so we can welcome you to the Children’s Courtyard, Moss Creek in Concord, NC!
Are you concerned about the impact of COVID on your child’s education? You’re not alone. Now, more than ever, early education matters. We’re here to help.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Elective programs allow students to learn by exploring creative outlets that will help them advance in the future—while giving your family more free time on evenings and weekends. We offer:
Fitness, Soccer, Music, Yoga, Spanish, Phonics, Handwriting & Advanced Math
In this classroom, your child will make discoveries and think independently, as we prepare them for the future. The authentic Montessori curriculum enables children to learn in their own way, at their own pace, through the practical application of sensory-based and self-directed activities. Our certified Montessori teacher spends significant time with each child, helping them discover unique talents and interests. Plus, a full complement of Montessori equipment offers tangible, hands-on learning opportunities to develop children’s skills and senses.
This mixed-aged classroom (for 3- to 6-year-olds) also helps children to develop social skills and challenges them to learn to work together—while being mindful of the best interests of others.
Ask your school director for additional details.
In our Preschool and Pre-K classrooms your child will discover opportunities to be creative, engage their mind and body, collaborate with friends, and learn new things. Some enhancements in the classrooms include iPads with educational apps; flexible seating options so children can move as they learn; hands-on STEAM activities with robots for early coding.
In our School-Age classroom, your child will find an immersive educational environment that is the perfect setting for productive, engaging mornings and afternoons, as we help them to be thinkers, makers, and doers. Some enhancements in this classroom include:
Education: University of California, Berkeley
Certifications: CPR/First Aid, SIDS, BSAC, Playground Safety, Crisis Intervention, Fire Safety
I have called this school home since doors opened in 2007. I'm a former police officer, foster parent and author, and was named the 2009 WBTV Hometown Hero of the Year. I love being helpful to others and helping each child feel valued and important.
