Go Beyond Teaching; Cultivate Learning
Our preschool is a place where curiosity and exploration are fostered and cultivated. It’s a place where every part of the day is intentional and taught from a Christian perspective. Children have freedom for spontaneous play where they make discoveries, solve problems, and have positive social interactions. These self-directed activities, together with teacher-led lessons that teach children how to work in a group, lay the groundwork for future academic success. Our qualified staff and small class sizes allow each child to grow, develop, and explore at their own pace. Preschool at Timothy not only prepares children for kindergarten and beyond, but also lays the foundation for a lifetime of faith.

Afternoon Explorations: Add an afternoon exploration after your AM class. Pick which one fits your schedule.
Afternoon preschool explorations have been designed to allow children to continue to explore the world around them through a variety of activities and experiences. The programs extend the preschool day and allow you to create a schedule that meets your child’s needs, whether that’s just one afternoon a week, or many. All programs will offer developmentally appropriate activities that encourage children to explore God’s world. After lunch there will be an opportunity for gross motor play and rest time. Then we will embark on an afternoon of exploration and fun.
Monday: Little Movers
Does your preschooler love to learn through movement? Little Movers is the place for them! Preschool children will develop gross and fine motor skills through indoor and outdoor play, group activities, and games. They can develop coordination, listening skills, and cooperation while engaging in activities. The development of gross motor skills allows every child to grow physically and emotionally.
Tuesday: Little Travelers
Our world belongs to God and we can’t wait to help your child explore it! Preschool children will discover an appreciation for communities near and far and diverse cultures in the world around them. The children will “travel” both domestic and abroad as they are exposed to various city buildings, land formations, and traditions.
Wednesday: Little Artists
Bring out your child’s artistic creativity in Little Artists! Preschool children will explore a variety of styles of art as they use different media to create. As they engage in various activities, children will learn that art is a way to express oneself and to communicate with others. Children will develop fine motor skills as they cut, paint, and glue, as well as learn to communicate with others about what they are creating.
Thursday: Little Scientists
Does your child wonder how things work? Are there a lot of “why” questions asked at your house? Then your child will enjoy Little Scientists! As the children engage in nature-based activities and science experiments, they will have the opportunity to explore the world God created. Explorations will include observing, predicting, and developing conclusions as they investigate the world around them.
Friday: Little Musicians
Let’s explore the gift of music together! Preschool children will be introduced to different styles of music as they develop a sense of rhythm, spatial awareness, and appreciation for music. Children will interact with a variety of instruments to create their own music and will also have the opportunity to make instruments.
