In addition to the learning going on in the classrooms, we have several special classes that enhance the children’s day at preschool, and stimulate their desire for fun and learning in the fine arts and sciences.
Music The significance of music as an enhancement to learning is well documented, and we are proud of the important role music plays in the Mt. Zion program. All students will visit the music teachers each week for additional music and rhythm experiences.
Movement All students attend a movement class once a week for a special time of group games and gross motor activities. Balls, beanbags, streamers, and hoops will all add to the fun of the movement class.
Science The 3,4 & 5 year-olds will make a weekly visit to the Science room. Our Science Teacher will help the children learn how to conduct simple experiments and explorations.
Spanish The 2 ½, 3, 4, & 5 year olds will visit the Spanish class weekly for songs, games, and basic vocabulary.
Art The 4 & 5 year olds will also have a weekly visit to the Art classroom, where they will learn the use of different art mediums and the appreciation of art related concepts.
Chapel The 3 through 5 year olds will attend chapel together twice each month for a time of Bible related stories and songs, lead by the Mt. Zion Ministry Staff and/or Ms. Kristi. The younger groups have chapel in their classrooms.
