Concord & the COVID-19 Pandemic
We're Here for our Southside Neighbors
During these uncertain times, Concord remains committed to its mission. Our vision is "to help Southside neighbors to a better way of life."

Remain open to provide childcare for youth who are enrolled. We will maintain normal operation of the early learning program and provide out-of-school care while school is closed. Our priority of service is 1) children who are already; and then 2) new families in the catchment area, as long as space is permitting.
Staff the reception desk to answer all your questions and calls in a timely manner. If possible, please call us at 317.637.4376 rather than visiting the Center in order to minimize contact;

Observe all best practices recommendations, including social distancing, increase cleanliness measures, and placing hand sanitizer in all common areas;
