Teachers & Staff

Zion Lutheran Preschool's warm and dedicated teaching staff is beloved by both our children and parents alike!

All of our teachers have earned college degrees, with the majority in Elementary Education or Early Childhood Education. Three teachers hold master's degrees in Early Childhood or Elementary Education. Many of our Teaching Assistants also have taken college coursework or earned their college degrees and all Assistants have high school diplomas. In fact, most of our teaching staff has come to work here after having their own children graduate from our programs!

All of the staff are certified in Infant/Child CPR and Obstructed Airway Management. They have all received Pennsylvania Police Background Checks, FBI clearances, and child abuse clearances. 

Each weekday, our staff teaches in nine bustling classrooms, a music room and an activity room.
