Zion Lutheran Early Childhood Center offers a Christ-centered, Biblically-directed approach to education (Proverbs 22:6). Our program is designed to foster a child’s individual, spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. This is achieved in part through a developmentally appropriate, play-based curriculum. Our Christian teaching staff strives to create a loving and nurturing environment where children can feel safe to express themselves and learn at their own pace. Our goal is to develop an atmosphere that encourages a love for Jesus Christ and a love for learning. Mission Statement of Zion Lutheran Early Childhood is to help young children grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18) by nurturing their spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development (Proverbs 22:6) and equipping them to share the love of Christ with others (Mark 16:15).
