At Zeeland Christian Preschool, we embrace our call to teach three to four-year-olds about the wonders of God's world. Through active, play-based education, we introduce children to letters, numbers, science, art, technology and more!
The core of every classroom is teaching kids to love God and to love others. But there are many ways to do that! Check out the innovative and exciting ways we educate kids in our non-traditional English program.
We are home to the only Christian-Mandarin Immersion program in the Midwest. As Mandarin is the most widely-spoken language in the world, this is an incredible opportunity to be considered for your child!
The largest and most established Christian Spanish Immersion program in Michigan. 100% immersion through 2nd grade and the majority of classes through 8th grade.
We believe that the days of teachers standing at the front of the classroom and giving monologues are over. Today's classrooms must be exploratory, interactive, challenging, relevant and project-oriented.
Our students know it's okay to try new things even if it means failing along the way. Children learn through failure and success. So, our job isn't to make sure they succeed. Our job is to provide them with many opportunities to fail and learn from their failures. After all, students who never fail are not pushing their academic boundaries hard enough.
Teachers focus on developing a trusted relationship with students so that the children feel comfortable trying new things.
Teachers point students toward the information they need but do not often provide it to them.
Teachers show students the amazing world God has created.
A project on Egypt (social studies) will involve the amazing geometry of the pyramids (math) while reading a fiction book on the life of slave girl in ancient times (language arts).
Teachers strive to show students real world applications in everything they teach.
Teachers meet each student where he or she is academically.
Students are encouraged to explore subject matter as opposed to being led through it by the teacher.
Teachers pose questions to students and give them the chance to discover the answers.
