Zion Lutheran Childcare



Childcare

Zion Lutheran Childcare programs were established as an outreach of our church to meet the needs of the community.

Mission Statement: Zion Lutheran Childcare is a Christian outreach of Zion Lutheran Church. The childcare provides a Christian atmosphere where children are safe and can feel loved. They will learn from us daily the way Christians should relate to each other. The goal of our program is to provide experiences that meet the children's needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual.

Our Childcare Center operates Monday through Friday from 6:30 am until 6:00 pm and accepts children 18 months through 12 years of age. Zion Lutheran Childcare Center is licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. It is unlawful for the Center to discriminate in the enrollment of children based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

Our childcare programs were established in 1977 as an outreach of our church to meet the needs of the community. Our center provides a safe and loving environment for children throughout the day.

The goal of our program is to provide experiences that meet the children's needs and stimulate learning in all developmental areas: physical, social, emotional, and intellectual. Interactions and activities are designed to develop children's self-esteem and positive feelings toward learning.
