I LOVE Concord Children's Academy!  My children are learning and exploring every day, but most importantly, they are safe, well cared for and loved.  The owner and director are wonderful, happy and you can tell they LOVE working with children.  My 2 yr old sits at circle time and is learning his name and ABC's which they never taught at our other school.  My 4 yr old is writing and learning phonics - the education is by far the best we have encountered.  I would encourage you to take a tour and see for yourself - switching centers was the best decision we made.
