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.
