Mrs. Patricia Richardson
Patricia Richardson or “Mimi” as you will hear throughout the center "she loves children" when it comes to Zion Kidz, she has 30 years of accounting, management and team building skills derived from United Parcel Service. She retired in 2016. She initially came to the center bi-weekly to assist and got bit by the ZKIDZ bug! She found a new love and desire to make the lives and growth of the children in our care better and more efficient for the staff. She quickly moved from the classroom to assistant Director and after much hard work and determination, she earned her CDA certificate and now serves as the Director of the center. She attended TWU and specialized in the care and development of special needs children. She is the 1st Lady of Zion Chapel PBC and serves in several capacities throughout the church and in our District and State Meetings. She served as the National Ministers Wives President for 12 years, but no greater satisfaction to her is that of servicing the children and parents of Zion Kidz Academy & Learning Center. Great Director and a hard worker, A Grand Mother at work with a Good Heart.

Hi, my name is Sarai Freeman. I began working at Zion Kidz February of 2017. I am the lead teacher for the 3 – 4-year-olds. In my class, my goal is to create an atmosphere conducive to learning and stimulate my students to enjoy the interactive processes of our classroom. In my class, your child will learn to use their communication skills and begin writing. It is my goal that your child leaves my room ready for BIG SCHOOL "Public School" knowing the alphabet, days of the week, numbers by sight, their shapes and colors in English and Spanish.
My name is NaKeisha Story. I have been working for Zion Kidz Academy since April of 2017. My daughter is also enrolled at Zion Kidz and she has learned so much while being a part of this program. I am the teacher for the 1 ½ - 2-year-old children. (Little Leaders) In my classroom, your child will learn and experience new challenges, build their confidence and learn social and cognitive skills. The Staff here at Zion Kidz works together to make sure each child is adjusted and focused daily. We push and encourage each other to find, create and develop our skills to improve our workflow and achievement levels with our students. When your child leaves my classroom, they are ready for Ms. Sarai’s class and then on to BIG SCHOOL!
