Little Zion Preschool pride itself on having a unique relationship with people in our community. This relationship includes involvement in numerous charity and community events as well as inviting community leaders into our school for educational experiences.
Being able to help local charities is not only important for our community but we feel it is important that each child build the knowledge that they can help others. For years, we have been collecting baby food and clothes for Birthright. The children made Christmas cards that were sent to local VA hospitals and retirement homes letting others know we care. Little Zion also participates in events the Zion Luther Church hold including food drives and the annual Scarecrow Festival. In 2016, the Scarecrow Festival raised money to create a ministry for individuals with developmental disabilities. We are so proud that our families contributed their time and talent making the scarecrows for this festival. All of these selfless acts promotes joy for your children and your family.
