Engage. Play. Inspire.
“When an archer releases an arrow from his bow, the trajectory is set at the beginning of the shot and not after it has taken flight. Beginning in PreK and continuing through each grade level, we seek to educate our students in the light of God’s truth and grace – with the goal of excellence being set at the beginning, and not the end, of the educational process.”

Preschool Scope and Sequence
The Preschool curriculum is intended to nurture children through the use of games, stories, creative play and one-on-one interaction with our teachers. Thematic units are used for instructional purposes to include letters & numbers. In addition to hands-on experiences with math, science, and language, our Preschool students also take part in weekly enrichment classes that include: music, physical education, Spanish and library. Chapel is a weekly part of our philosophy of bringing children up in the Word of God. The students learn of God’s love for them through song and Bible stories. Field Trips are used as enrichment to the class studies of God’s world.
The Preschool at Zion Christian Academy serves children from ages three to five and is an integral part of our lower school campus. The Preschool facilities are designed with the needs of these very young students in mind. Our classrooms and preschool-specific playground inspire creativity and the joy of learning through play.
