Zion Lutheran School was recently honored by the Lutheran Social Services of New York (LSSNY) for its “Outstanding contribution to the education of our children”. The Award was through its Early Life Program, which has a commitment to provide superior early childhood education experiences in center-based and home-based environments within the New York City area.
LSSNY believes that young children learn best when they feel secure and know they can trust the adults caring for them. Early LIFE’s goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for all children and families, which include the following: Educational curriculum, instruction and assessments; Safe, and healthy environment; Open communication and collaborative relationships with parents; Staff development and effective teaching practices.
The Zion Lutheran staff is quite honored to receive this award. Zion’s Pre-K teacher (and alumnus), Jennifer Schendel says, “We have a great thing going at our little school and we work hard to make this the best program for the Pre-K students and their families. It is a blessing to be recognized for all of our hard work!”
Zion Lutheran School enrolls children from preschool- grade 6 in a Christ-centered environment with high academic standards in a loving, family-like atmosphere, and a great student/teacher ratio.
