Welcome to Zeeland Public Preschool at the Early Childhood Center. We are delighted your family will be part of our preschool community! At Zeeland Public Schools our motto is Safe, Valued, Loved, and Learning. These core values are at the forefront of all we do every day.
Preschool is a time for curiosity and discovery, as well as positive social, emotional, and academic growth. The preschool years establish a critical foundation for your child’s education. We commit to building rich, inclusive environments and opportunities to support learning for all children. Our teachers engage in ongoing professional development around best practices in literacy, math, and social-emotional instruction.
We follow district requirements and state licensing guidelines for childcare centers across our school programs. ZPS works closely with the Ottawa County Health Department advocating for recommendations aligned to local data trends to ensure your child’s safety.
Our talented and kind ECC teachers extend the invitation to meet all students and caregivers at one of our preschool open house events. Details regarding your child’s open house will be found in the welcome letter from the classroom teacher. At your child’s open house, you will receive specific information regarding school and classroom procedures.
On a specific procedural note, we are thankful for our amazing facility, yet realize parking is limited. Therefore, child pick-up and drop-off protocols are enforced. Please do not arrive early or linger in the parking lot longer than necessary. Be flexible and courteous as children and caregivers move in and out of the parking lot.
If you would like to follow along with our schoolwide updates, and delightful photos, throughout the year visit Instagram (@ earlychildhood_zeeland), Facebook (@zpsecc), or our Caregiver Connection site (zpsecc.blogpsot.com).
I look forward, with excitement, to getting to know each of you as we care for and educate your children together. Reach out with questions you might have by contacting our office anytime!
