Academic Foundation

At St. Timothy Preschool and Kindergarten, we know the importance of creating a safe environment for children to learn. 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 while focusing on the Early Learning Standards.

Play to Learn

Children at the preschool level learn best through exploring the world around them. Teachers utilize learning centers to guide children as they learn each of the Early Learning Standards and develop social skills. Daily recess allows children to develop gross motor skills while encouraging physical health. We have secure playgrounds with age-appropriate equipment for each class, and a gym for inclement weather days.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Starting at 12 months old, our children have music, dance and Spanish classes included as components of our curriculum. Research shows that exposure to music, movement and multiple languages will support both cognitive and physical development. During this time they sing songs, develop rhythm patterns, learn words in Spanish and prepare for our Christmas and Spring performances. Our Jr. Pre-K through Kindergarten classes participate in the Christmas and Spring performance where they’re able to show our families what they’ve been working on!

Chapel Time

Children in our older two-year-olds through Kindergarten classes attend chapel in the morning to hear a Bible story and sing praise and worship songs. Children also learn a new Bible verse each month and celebrate their birthdays.

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.

Dual Language Pre-K

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.
