- provide a well organized indoor space with a variety of interest areas and an opportunity for regular outdoor education
- provide a staff of Christian caregivers who guide students and work well with each other and parents
- provide activities that reflect the broad range of students’ developmental stages and interests

There are no discounts or refunds for short months, sickness, vacations, or days off. Checks should be made payable to “Timothy Christian School”. If the payment is not received by the 1st of the month, a child may NOT attend until the payment is made in full. Any account that has a check returned as NSF will have a $25 penalty charged to the account. Any family that has more than one child enrolled in the after school program will receive a 10% discount.
