All children, from Birth through age 12 are welcome at our Day Care. We believe that a Christian education is a vital aspect of God’s commission, commanded by Him to the church through the Great Commission.  It is the whole education of the people of God, Regardless of age, carried out under the influence of the Gospel.

We believe that a Christian educator is committed to provide for God’s people a complete education under the influence of the gospel, by meeting their spiritual, social, and emotional needs.

Providing Christ-centered education to His children.  Zion feels that our school is only one part of the overall religious education and we feel it is a priority for our children to become involved in the church now, as it will set habits and standards for the rest of their lives.
