Kindergarten

Go Beyond Expectations; Meet Needs 

Kindergarten at Timothy Christian Schools is a place where a child is free to learn and explore. It is also a place where each activity is intentional so a child can learn about God and His world through music, movement, arts and crafts, language development, and cooperative play. At Timothy our teachers foster each child’s spiritual, social, emotional, and academic growth. Kindergarten at Timothy gives students a strong foundation for future academic success.

Biblically-Rooted

School truly becomes an extension of home as parents and teachers pray for students, share a Biblical worldview, and remain in lock-step, as they seek to train and equip students for life.

Full day kindergarten: 8:15 am-2:52 pm

Half-day morning kindergarten: 8:15 am-noon

Progressive Kindergarten

Progressive begins the school year as a morning half-day, but will gradually add full days over the course of the year. This gradual increase of the school day helps prepare students for a full day of first grade. The Progressive Kindergarten schedule is: 

November 3: students attend school for one full day each week (Tuesday) along with four half days.
January 5: students attend school for two full days each week (Tuesday and Thursday) along with three half days.
March 1: students attend school for three full days each week (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday) along with two half days.
