St. Timothy’s Pre-School was established in 1975 as a non-profit organization. The preschool is a social outreach program of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church and is a part of the Church’s ministry to the local community. The school does not provide religious instruction or worship, rather it operates on the premise that the Church’s mission can best be expressed by “living out the values” of Christianity rather than “teaching” them in a formalized sense or setting, improving in their child development.
At St. Timothy’s, the primary objective is to provide a loving and nurturing environment where children can learn to respect and care for themselves and others without regard to gender, race, nationality, religious or ethnic background. St. Timothy’s Pre-School is governed by an appointed Board of Directors comprised of representatives of St. Timothy’s Church and the community.
Small morning classes are offered for children between the ages of 2 1/2 to 5 years old. The Kindergarten-Readiness curriculum includes art, math, science, music/movement, and language arts. The preschool also offers a well-equipped playground.
The preschool is licensed by the State of Virginia and is a member of the Episcopal Schools Association. St. Timothy’s staff are trained in first aid and CPR and their qualifications meet or exceed all State of VA requirements.
