The Mount Zion Nursery School contains programs for students 3 to 5 years of age. Children in the nursery school are in their early childhood developmental stages and they are curious, energetic, lovable explorers. Since these students are very young, it is crucial to their development and emotional well-being that they are nurtured. We provide an environment in which each student will feel loved, liked and wanted.
The Nursery school consists of two programs listed below:
Students are 3 years old by March 1 of the enrolling year.
Students are 4 year old by September 1 of the enrolling year.
