In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, as of Thursday, March 19, the Methodist Tiny Tots Preschool has officially closed its operations until further notice. With great deliberation, the Tiny Tots Board of Directors decided on this plan of action in conjunction with the recommendations of the Stanislaus County Office of Education and the California Department of Public Health and implemented in synchronicity with the closure of the Modesto City School System.


Welcome to Tiny Tots Preschool – a loving, faith-based Modesto preschool, enriching the whole child, body and soul for over 50 years. 


Tiny Tots Preschool welcomes children ages two through five years. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:00am to 6:00pm. We offer full-time, part-time and morning enrichment programs, and are open year-round. We are closed for 11 legal holidays.


Our program encourages overall good hygiene, including toileting and hand-washing. We also provide diapering

service for children not potty trained.



Tiny Tots Preschool is an extension of First United Methodist Church’s educational program. Our developmental program provides a safe and nurturing environment that supports the development of young children. A variety of play based activities that help children build social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills through positive, hands-on, playing experiences that focus on key learning goals and Kindergarten readiness.



Our preschool is in the heart of downtown Modesto, located at the First United Methodist Church. We are located across the street from the Stanislaus County Library and down the street from the Gallo Center of the Arts.
