Zion Lutheran Early Childhood Education Center


After hearing the story “Noah and the Ark,” the children play with Noah’s animals!

Our 2-year-old program was developed in responses to the request of parents whose children are not potty trained or eligible for our 2 ½-year-old preschool program.

Our 2-year-old program compliments our 2 ½-year-old program by providing experiences that encourage development in gross motor, fine motor, spiritual, intellectual and social skills. For many, this is their first experience with non-family members and their first exposure to a social environment with their peers. Children will gain confidence as they separate from parents, establish early classroom routines and begin to make choices as they develop social interactions.

Children will be provided opportunities to explore learning centers including blocks, manipulatives, dramatic play and other creative play materials. Teachers will guide children in art activities, music with movement, social interactions and games. These experiences prepare children for their journey into future exploration of learning through projects.
