Early Childhood Center

Office hours: Monday - Thursday 8-4 and Friday 8-1.

Summer Hours June 13-August 20 8 am-3 pm.

Our bright and cheery Early Childhood Center at 140 W. McKinley operates with your preschooler in mind, from our nurturing and highly qualified teaching staff to the whimsical train theme found throughout the building.

Your three or four year old will feel welcome and secure here.   Your child will be immersed in a learning environment that includes: early reading, literacy and math skills, social and emotional skills, motor development, and . . . fun!   Our teaching standards and curriculum are aligned with the Michigan Early Learning Standards of Quality.

Each classroom is supervised at all times by a teacher and at least one assistant, hand-picked by our administration for their skills and exceptional ability working with children. We also offer wrap-around childcare options in our building.

You’ll be glad to know the Early Childhood Center provides programs that allow children to attend with full scholarships along with tuition programs. We encourage you—and your child—to take a tour of the Early Childhood Center to discover the learning magic (plus the delightful train theme!) that awaits your family at the launch site for learning at Zeeland Public Schools.
