Zion’s Hill Preschool Program provides a developmentally appropriate learning environment for children ages two to five years.

Our team of highly skilled educators facilitates play-based learning through thematic activities, drawing upon the Creative Curriculum and the CT Preschool Curriculum Framework.

Play-based learning offers children a natural environment to build the foundations for reading, writing, math, and science, while simultaneously practicing the social and emotional tools necessary to foster friendships, independence, and self-help skills. These skills, coupled with gross-motor activities and creative arts, allow children to grow through exploration, discovery, and expression.

Zion’s Hill Preschool Program is an Independent Nondenominational School. Our school community has no religious affiliation. We welcome all faiths and cultures.

Our low teacher-to-student ratio enables us to focus on each child and their unique potential, which in turn allows children to develop self-confidence and a lifelong love of learning. In partnership with families and the community, we provide a nurturing and loving atmosphere to support our children and provide continuity between school and home.
