TOT Preschool

Teaching Our Toddlers (T.O.T.) Preschool is a ministry of the church. The preschool uses a developmental approach to learning. We offer morning classes for 3 and 4 year-olds and an afternoon “Lunch Bunch” program Tuesday through Thursday.

Goals and Philosophy
TOT Preschool emphasizes the development of a Christian character and decision making skills. A child’s intellectual, physical, emotional and social skills are the focus of all classroom activities. It is TOT's goal to provide a stimulating and nurturing environment for children which will generate
enthusiasm for learning as well as prepare preschoolers for 

Vision Statement
Teaching Our Toddlers (TOT) Preschool strives to bring the love of God and the teaching of Jesus into the lives of preschool children by implementing Christian principles and committing time and talent to the children God has placed in the care of TOT staff.

Our curriculum encourages children to develop physically, spiritually, socially and intellectually. The classrooms pro-vide activities in areas of science, math, reading and writing readiness. Children develop social skills and practice listening and recall skills. All classes attend a music/movement session each week. German language is introduced during a monthly “language experience” time in the classes for four year olds.

T.O.T. Preschool is a ministry of Sydenstricker United Methodist Church to preschool-aged children. Founded in 1988.
