PRESCHOOL

Preschool is crucial for kindergarten readiness. But we want more than ready, we want them to BURN BRIGHT.

"My child is thriving at ZCS (Creation Ridge) in  threeschool because he comes home every day with a new way Mrs. D taught him about God's love!" - Rachel

"We love ZCS because we know our child is being surrounded by people who LOVE and teach her about the Awesome wonders of our God in everyday life!!" - Christa

"My child has thrived at ZCS because his teachers have helped him discover his gifts and develop them." - Susan

"ZCS is like a home away from home for our kids. We know they are safe, they are loved, and they are learning to love." - Jessica

Exponentially expand your child's future opportunities by gifting them the most spoken language in the world.

We are the only Christian Mandarin Immersion school in the midwest.

Starting in preschool, this track goes through 8th grade at ZCS and then on to Holland Christian High School.

SPANISH IMMERSION

The second most spoken language in West Michigan learned at the largest and most established Christian Spanish Immersion program in West Michigan.

Spanish Immersion contains all the elements of our English program with one additional layer - classes are taught entirely in Spanish!

Mandarin and Spanish are built off of this foundational program which is anything but traditional.

As Christians, we believe a whole-child approach means cognitive, social-emotional, and spiritual. This approach is how every child at ZCS is helped to develop into their identity as a child of God!

This program is a play-based preschool program led by experienced and educated teachers, who nurture students' social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth.

WE LOVE KIDS!

We love the way they think. We love the way they play. We love the way they experience the world with ALL their senses. And most importantly, we love seeing God through their eyes!

We believe our love for kids is what makes teaching possible - especially at the young ages of 3, 4, and 5. When children feel safe, secure, and loved, they are able to open up to new experiences and new opportunities. We are able to nurture our students' social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth because of the caring relationships we build with them.

What type of things will my child learn at Zeeland Christian Preschool?

  • How to pray and worship with friends
  • Letters, numbers, colors, shapes
  • Nake recognition and writing
  • Taking turns and sharing
  • Developing independence
