Connecting with God

Jesus Time

One way our Preschool builds each child's connection with God is through Jesus Time.  Each week the classes come together in worship and usually see their friend "Jellie" there.  "Jellie" is a little puppet who talks about very similar situations or ask questions about Jesus.  There are songs, books and other ways to build this knowledge included.  It is through this open, engaging program that children learn how God is working in their lives, that He always loves us and we learn more about His presence.

Celebrations

Where other programs must be neutral or shy away from Christianity, we embrace it at Little Zion Preschool.  All religions are welcome and we teach about Jesus' love of all of humanity but we also celebrate our faith.  We have annual Christmas celebrations and learn about the gift of hope Easter brings.  When we gather together we pray and thank God for your children and your family!

Curriculum

In addition to our weekly worship, Jesus Time, there are aspects of our curriculum that focus on our faith throughout the day.  Before we eat any meal, we fold our hands, bow our head and sing a prayer called "Thank You Jesus".  We have built giving thanks to God, being kind to others, empathy, compassion and caring as a center piece of our curriculum for all ages.  In years past, including this one, the Pre-K class learns about a biblical figure corresponding to the letter of the week.  We do this in fun story telling, crafts, plays and more.  This exploration of our faith has been tremendous!  This curriculum addition will be incorporated into the Threes' and Fours' programs beginning in 2017!

Connecting with God

The goal of educating the young children in our school encompasses more then just ABC's and 123's.  It is about putting that academic knowledge to use and growing experiences within our family, community and yes, with God.  We want each child to leave our school knowing that God loves them, they have a special gift and with God at their side, there is nothing they cannot accomplish!  Our school embraces our connection with God and help children do the same!
