Early Childhood

Learn about the amazing options available for three and four-year-olds at ZCS.

In preschool, we focus on exploring God's world, developing friendships, and helping children to discover a lifelong love of learning.

Zeeland Christian Preschool is all about teaching the littlest of God's children to love Jesus, to love each other and to become lifelong learners.


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.

At Zeeland Christian Preschool, we will help your child to:

  • Become more aware of God in our world
  • Show love for God and each other
  • Achieve a good self-image
  • Learn to accept and respond to others
  • Improve verbal, listening, and perceptual skills
  • Develop large and small motor skills
  • Develop attitudes that support the love of learning, problem-solving, and curiosity

This beloved program welcomes students with varying abilities in to the classroom. Inclusion benefits both the general education student and the student with disabilities because it teaches that we are all created in God’s image and part of the body of Christ. If you have a child with disabilities, please contact Stacy Deters to discuss how we can serve you and your child.
