ZCS Transitional Kindergarten

With the unique Kindergarten Transitions program, kindergartners attend ZCS every day. Parents choose the length of the day based on what will fit their child best!

Kindergarten Transitions

ZCS offers a one-of-a-kind kindergarten experience that is custom-designed for your child!

Zeeland Christian offers a unique Kindergarten Transitions program!

For the 2017-2018 school year, parents have a part-time and full-time kindergarten option. All kindergartners will attend ZCS every day in the morning. Full-time students will stay through the afternoon. Parents who have chosen part-time kindergarten can pick up their child at lunchtime. You may extend your child's day as the year progresses.  

  • Part-time:  8:40 a.m. - 11:50 a.m.
  • Full-time: 8:40 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Mornings will be devoted to the core ZCS kindergarten curriculum. Afternoons will primarily be made up of enrichment activities. We love this program because it allows parents to help ease children into a full-time school schedule. Or, students can remain in the half-day for the duration of kindergarten and reserve full-time for first grade. The purpose is to equip parents with a schedule that best fits their child!
