Our teachers nurture you child's individual educational, social and developmental needs with hands-on exploration in a rich language, math and science environment. We realize each child grows and develops at his/her own pace, and we encourage them to participate and  grow accordingly.
Below are important factors to consider when selecting a preschool.

Teachers’ Education:

Mt. Zion uses a MD State Department of Education approved curriculum, "Opening the World of Learning." OWL by Pearson is a comprehensive, early-literacy program.



Length of School Day:
2 1/2 hours for twos, threes, and fours. Activities are conducted to address the developmentally appropriate needs of the children.

Our Preschool Director, Rebecca Fitzgerald, has 19 years of experience as a Montessori teacher of children ages 2-6 and a director of a Montessori school for ages 6 weeks through third grade. She has an associate's degree in Early Childhood Development as well as more than 70 additional credits from Ashford and Radford universities.
