Kidz 4 Christ

Our Mission

Kidz 4 Christ focuses on developing the spiritual, mental and physical growth of all children from birth through young adulthood.

How do we accomplish this…

  • Kidz 4 Christ implements a Christian-based curriculum in our Early Learning Centers to educate the young child and prepare the child for school readiness.
  • Children in our centers “LEARN BY DOING!”  “Learn by doing” means we ensure children experience spiritual and cultural opportunities in their communities.  Oftentimes, children have not visited the local museum or attractions in their communities.  Our programs requires proper exposure to these experiences to facilitate school readiness.
  • Bridging community stakeholders and families together for the ultimate Christian education experience.

Our Concept

The concept of “Kidz 4 Christ” is assisting to create and sustain growth within the AME Zion Church.

Sustainable growth with a spiritual foundation at an early age is key to retaining and continuing growth in Christ through the natural life of the family. Connecting families to a spiritual life will provide a nurturing and positive growth experience for children and their families for generations to follow.
