Enrollment Info

Thank you for considering the Early Childhood Program at Zion Lutheran School. We offer a variety of options to meet your early
childhood needs.

We are excited to offer multi-age preschool classes for 3 and 4 year olds. These preschool classes will allow students to learn and grow at their own individual pace. Center based activities will be a focus in the learning environment. STEM activities are included in our daily curriculum. There are many benefits to support multi-age classrooms;


• Parents may choose the number of days their child attends; 3, 4, or 5
• We are planning on once again offering a “Super 4’s” class for children who turn 5 in the fall.
• Multi-age groups promote family-like relationships
• Children can teach and learn from each other
• There is often less competitive behavior and more cooperative or helpful behaviors
• Teachers have the opportunity to develop closer more long-term relationships with the children
• Multi-age groups offer children opportunities to develop and practice social skills.
• Curriculum is based on at least a two year cycle providing a wide range and variety of activities

A 2 year old classroom is also available Monday – Friday, 8:00 – 11:00am, full day extended care is also an option.
