Concordia Place

We're Going Organic

Our recent parent survey indicated a change in the quality of food was needed and we are happy to announce starting in August, Concordia Place is going organic!

Gourmet Gorilla, a local and organic food company, will be providing meals to children at both Concordia Place locations. Gourmet Gorilla obtains 100% of its produce from local sustainable & certified organic purveyors, their meats are free range along with being hormone and anti-biotic free, they have a strict Non GMO policy, and they operate out of a tree nut free facility.


Open House Events - Whipple Center

Please join us for a tour of our facilities and classrooms! Families with children of any age are welcome to attend. You are welcome to bring your children along for the tour if you would like, but we do offer “playdates” for children in the classrooms before their enrollment date. If you would like to attend an Open House, you must be already on our wait list, which you can do by simply filling out our wait list application and emailing it to info@concordiaplace.org or faxing it to 773-463-1690. Please RSVP for the Open House that you would like to attend by calling 773-463-1600 x111, since we do limit the size of tour groups. We look forward to meeting your family and showing you all that our programs have to offer!
