Our Longmont preschool prepares children for academic and life success in kindergarten and beyond. We are inclusive and deliberately diverse, promoting empathy and instilling a love of learning paired with a strong academic foundation for all children. Our preschool supports each child's individualized academic, social, emotional, and physical growth.

Our classrooms include students with various learning styles and abilities, and our teachers' strong knowledge of child development helps them to successfully teach and challenge young children of many talents, interests and abilities. We utilize a variety of curriculums that teach reading, math and science exploration, social skills, and foster a child's cognitive and motor development.

We offer both half day and full-day, full-year programs that meet the child care needs of Longmont's working families, as well as the needs of children eager for more time in a school environment.

From the Director:

In high quality early childhood programs, inclusion is simply an example of the regular practice of meeting the individual needs of each child and family. No two learners are alike, whether they have a disability or not, and inclusive schools place great importance on creating opportunities for students to learn and be assessed in a variety of ways. The Tiny Tim Center teachers consider a wide range of learning styles in designing instruction and utilize nationally known research-based curriculums that meet K-12 Common Core State Standards and prepare each child for success.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers' strong knowledge of child development, most teachers have master's degrees, helps them to successfully teach young children with all talents, interests and abilities. In effective inclusive programs, teachers adapt activities to include all students, even though their individual goals may be different.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

To provide comprehensive early childhood education and therapeutic services specifically designed to assist each child in reaching his or her highest potential.

A Typical Day

HALF DAY PRESCHOOL: Each day the teachers support the children in building social skills, gaining independence, participating in classroom routines and preparing for kindergarten. Fundamental skills that contribute to developing a foundation for math concepts, reading and writing are incorporated into each day. Activities include art, music and movement, storybooks and activities, games, sign-language, yoga, dramatic play, sensory play, cooking, science exploration, cultural awareness and outdoor fun. Teachers develop learning activities and create the classroom environment based on each child’s interests and developmental level.

FULL DAY PRESCHOOL: The children have an opportunity to be a part of a classroom filled with peers of different age groups. This environment provides a unique opportunity for children to develop at their own rate and not feel as if they are “behind” or “ahead” the other children in their age bracket. In this environment children will build empathy, problem-solving and leadership skills as they are part of a group with a larger span of developmental levels. Children will be part of this classroom for their whole preschool experience to promote consistency, growth and independence. Each day will be filled with activities that promote social, fine/gross motor, language, literacy, math, and self-help skills. Children will participate in art, music and movement, dramatic play, sign-language, sensory play, yoga, cooking, science exploration, literacy, writing and math activities, and outdoor fun. We will provide an AM snack and PM snack, nap time and potty training support as needed.
