The mission of Zion Lutheran Early Childhood Center is to nurture the souls, minds, and bodies of God’s children through songs and play, Bible stories and chapel, and prayer.
The Early Childhood program was established as an outreach to those in the community in need of a part time caregiving program. ECC gives parents the opportunity to have some free time, work part time, do housework, run errands, etc…while giving the children a chance to interact with children their own age. The program provides children with a safe and loving Christian environment. All children will be accepted and loved, in a place where laughter and play are cherished, and where children are given a warm response.
In the Early Childhood program, Christian education is taught through the everyday activities of snack time, indoor and outdoor play, along with daily circle time and chapel twice a month. Songs and music are presented every day for the children to participate in and enjoy. Children are met on their level, and teachers show, by example, Christ’s way of love, acceptance, and forgiveness.
Bella loves her ECC class, the staff and teachers. It's not a babysitter or daycare, they teach these young minds all the basics and about God.
