Tiny Treasures Preschool
“Train up a child in the way they should go; even when they are old they will not depart from it.”
Tiny Treasures first opened over twenty years ago. The preschool operates year-round. The typical school day runs from 8:30-3:30 with potential allowances for parents’ work schedule. We daily strive to love your unique child(ren) in a clean, safe, secure, and licensed facility.
We are daily driven by the individual needs and desires of each child. To help us with that focus we supplement our relationship with your child(ren) by using One in Christ, Handwriting without Tears, and a custom assessment derived from Creative Curriculum and the National Head Start Standards.

What’s Happening at Tiny Treasures Preschool
Pentecost? Trinity? Non-festival? These are all names for the Sundays that come after Pentecost and before the festival half of the Church year that starts with Advent in late November. Regardless of their names, the Sundays of the Summer are time for the Holy Spirit to grow us all in the Word of the Lord. Here at Tiny Treasures a new school year will have started on August 29th and the Bible story that we cover first is that Jesus is the true God with His calming of the storm. Next, we will jump into Genesis with Creation, the Flood and end September introducing Abraham from Genesis 12.
The assessments that the preschoolers start the year off with focus on language development, listening and understanding, and speaking and communicating. We will practice one, two and three step commands, listening to stories for 5 whole minutes and staying with a group activity for 10 minutes. We will also be practicing making requests, asking questions, and using conversational turn taking. These are all things that parents can do to help support language development in their 3 and 4 year olds.
The only dates to remember that are upcoming are that there is no school on Labor Day, Monday, September 5. Although the elementary school is closed on Monday, September 26 for parent teacher conferences, the preschool will be open that day. Fall break is the week of October 10-14 with both the preschool and elementary school closed.
Tiny Treasures Preschool, as an early childhood education provider, considers the staff to be partners in the children’s’ activities and learning rather than just a supervisor. Throughout the day, we work to form caring relationships with the children, support their play ideas, share control with them, focus on the individual strengths and needs of each child, and promote a problem-solving approach to social conflict.
Springtime denotes the Lenten season of the church year. Our Bible studies in March prepare us for the coming of Easter: Palm Sunday, Jesus’ Anointing, Good Friday and Easter Morning. The April Bible stories wrap up the life of Jesus with Easter Day, the Ascension, Pentecost and then move to Peter and John healing the crippled man. Our special theme in April is transportation.
The assessments for the spring continue to grow the children in their cognitive and physical development. March focuses on approaches to learning: completing tasks, staying with a self-selected activity for 10 minutes, adding variety to their daily routine, and independently problem solving. In April we move to a clear testing of fine motor skills while in May we will focus on our gross motor skill testing as the weather gets much warmer.
We are planning for the summer and the fall during the springtime. Tiny Treasures is open during the summer. If you are interested in having your child continue through the summer, please contact Tiny Treasures as soon as possible.
