Our Purpose
Mount Zion Weekday Preschool is one of the ongoing educational ministries of Mount Zion Baptist Church. The Bible says “teach your children to choose the right path, and when they are older, they will remain upon it.”
Our program is designed to help your child develop intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually. We will strive to provide a stimulating environment in which your child can have a happy and meaningful preschool experience in a distinctively Christian atmosphere.

Our Curriculum
Our curriculum offers fun, “learn as you play” activities and experiences that focus on skills and abilities that are developing naturally at each age level. We use “Wee Learn” and "Zoo Phonics" for our core curriculum and they are enhanced by our Curriculum Coordinator, continuing education classes provided for our teachers and additional early childhood resources.
Bible stories, verses and principles are included in our curriculum as well as Chapel times each month. All classes enjoy weekly Music and Movement classes which play an important role in the development of your child and include a variety of activities such as singing, rhythm, listening skills, coordination, and instruments.  We also have a 3 day P.E. class for children in four year old classes.

Our Faculty
Our teachers are Christians who are well trained and experienced in early childhood education. We are members of several preschool associations and our teachers are required to attend continuing education classes during the year at recognized institutions, under qualified instructors.

Our Facilities
All of our classrooms have the needed furnishings and recommended space suitable for each age level. Restroom facilities are available in each classroom. We have a playground with fun, colorful play structures that are age and developmentally appropriate for preschoolers. Our Christian Life Center is available for special activities as well as playtime on rainy/cold days.

Our Daily Routine
Our day is structured and organized with a schedule that includes learning centers, small group and individual classroom experiences, circle time, indoor/outdoor activities and lunch time.
