Our Programs: Preschool
St. Timothy's Preschool
In the early 1980s, our preschool program started off as a “Mother's Morning Out”, expanding in 1985 into our new Education Building with the current preschool format.
Based on learning through play, the emphasis of our program is on development of socialization skills needed for a formal school setting. Students are also offered music enrichment at least twice monthly. A non-denominational Chapel program is offered once a month.
Enrollment is on a first come basis with St.Timothy's and St.Paul's parishioners given priority, followed by currently enrolled and siblings, then general public.
Children must turn the age of the desired class on or before September 1st. Children turning 5 between September 1st and December 31st may be placed in the older four year old class. This class may also include children who are age eligible but not quite ready for kindergarten.
