Zion Covenant Preschool receives Peterson grant

JAMESTOWN, NY — As the 2010 – 2011 school year comes to a close, most people are thinking about summer vacations, hitting the beaches, and even just sleeping late in the morning. That’s not the case for Adrianne Smeltzer, Director of Zion Covenant Preschool. She is already thinking about and planning for next year. There are children to enroll, families to contact, and budgets to prepare. Thanks to the Karl Peterson Fund and the Chautauqua Community Region Foundation, this last task has been a little easier to finalize.

Zion Covenant Preschool was awarded a grant from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation that assists the school in providing financial assistance to families in need.

“As a ministry, the fees we charge for tuition barely cover our expenses. There are many families who desire to participate in our program who cannot afford to pay the full amount. That’s where the Karl Peterson Fund grant comes in. Families in need, many of them single parent homes, fill out an application requesting financial support. The Peterson grant enables us to provide preschool at a discounted rate to these families,” explains Director Smeltzer.

She goes on to say, “Zion Covenant Church and its members also contribute to our scholarship fund. Without their support and the support of the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, we couldn’t do what we do.”

The preschool offers a certified Universal Pre-K program which meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 – 11:30 AM in conjunction with Southwestern Central Schools. (Subm. photo)

Zion Covenant Preschool is an outreach ministry of Zion Covenant Church. The preschool offers a certified Universal Pre-K program which meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 – 11:30 AM in conjunction with Southwestern Central Schools. They also offer a 3-year old class at the same time with two, three, or five day per week options. An hour long weekly group is available for toddlers and that someone special. The school is also preparing to provide wrap-around-care for the 2011-2012 school year for those children who need childcare for the remainder of the day.

The preschool’s theme is “learning through playing, exploring, discovering, experiencing, and creating”.

For more information or to enroll your child, contact Adrianne Smeltzer, Director at (716) 664-9137 or check them out on the web at www.zionpreschool.org.
