Early Childhood

Zion Lutheran Church & School has provided a quality early childhood program for over 30 years. Since its inception, our preschool and kindergarten programs have been outstanding. We are blessed with committed and loving educators who serve our young children on a daily basis.

One of the highlights surrounding our early childhood program is that in January of 2011, our kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Kathy Pitts was named the Early Childhood Educator of the Year. This incredible honor was bestowed upon her by the Texas District of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. There are nearly 1,300 early childhood teachers in Lutheran schools throughout the state of Texas.
