Academic Time

Many elementary school teachers in the area recommend St. Timothy Preschool based on the academic preparedness they observe in the students who have attended our preschool. St. Timothy teachers strive to provide the best in academic education, utilizing several curriculum components.

Play Time

Children at the preschool level learn best while they play. Therefore, St. Timothy offers both time in and out of the classroom to play. Teachers utilize learning centers to help children understand unit concepts and develop social skills while playing in the classroom. Children also enjoy developing large motor skills during recess time on our secure playground or in our full-size gym where children may play in the event of inclement weather.

Music and Movement

Music and movement class is fun for everyone. Children have this class M TH F at St. Timothy. During this time they sing songs, learn rhythm patterns, and prepare for programs. Our Jr. Pre-K and K-Prep classes participate in the Christmas and Spring program. We have a dance class on Wednesdays that focuses on movements and learning various dance steps.  Our children ages 2 years and older develop their gross motor skills in this fun, energetic way

Chapel Time

Children in our older two-year-olds through K-Prep classes attend chapel M T TH F in the morning to hear a Bible story and sing praise and Bible action songs. Children also learn a new Bible verse each month.

French/Spanish

Following chapel time, children have a brief lesson in French or Spanish. The lessons include learning to count, colors, days of the week, and key seasonal words based on a preschooler's interest level in both of these languages. Children in our two-year-old classes through K-Prep classes enjoy an extra circle time in Spanish on Tuesdays.  This extra time creates interest in the language and allows time for interaction and growth at their specific development level.

Dual Language Kindergarten Prep

In addition to the traditional English instruction using Frog Street Press and other curriculum, they also are introduced to the Spanish language through music, books, and focused teaching time in Spanish only. The average daily goal is to teach 75% in English, 25% in Spanish. We highly encourage the dual language students to enroll for at least 4 days to help with their preparation for kindergarten.

Hot Lunch

An optional hot lunch is offered daily for an additional charge. Monthly menus are provided in our school newsletter.
