Our Curriculum

A good early childhood curriculum adopts self-directed learning as its objective. This method assumes that the most effective learning is that which grows out of the child’s own motivation. With this type of curriculum the Mt. Zion teacher will:

  1. provide the child with choices.
  2. offer the child opportunities for experiencing and understanding their environment through manipulation, through play, through exploration of materials and ideas at the child’s own rate, and
  3. interact with the child to reinforce and extend his choices and discoveries.To enable our preschool to assist a child in growing to his or her potential, a very carefully planned and supervised program is presented to the child. We include various activities of play, religion, movement, math, science, music, social studies, language arts, and creative arts. We invite and encourage volunteers to support our ECC program.

Mt. Zion Preschool is in harmony with the Colorado Department of Human Services and is licensed under their authority and supervision.  Mt. Zion has received the highest rating for child care by the CDHS, which evaluates the program annually.
