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-olds, Pre-K, and in addition to our traditional School-Age programs, we are also offering full-day programs for our School-Age distance learners called Prep Lab. Our Prep Lab keeps children engaged and connected with their elementary school needs.
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 have a strong commitment to keep your children safe, not only during uncertain times when there is a global focus to stop the spread of germs, but in the daily details that matter so much. We have safety captains that are ever mindful of proactive safe behaviors and ensuring safe environments, we have strict requirements for food safety and materials in the classrooms.
Our enhanced COVID safety procedures include staff wearing masks, (children ages 2 and up are also permitted to wear masks,) daily wellness and temperature checks and health screenings for children and staff, all adults entering the building must wear face coverings. We have social distanced lobby drop-offs and pick-ups that only permit staff and children entering the classroom areas of the school. All tours are restricted to the lobby with live feeds using the same camera system that is available to parents through our WatchMeGrow app. We are transparent with our families knowing that the trust you need to allow us to care for your child can only be earned.
Please stop by so we can welcome you to the Children’s Courtyard, Moss Creek in Concord!
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

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.
