Now Enrolling for Fall 2023


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, 7:00 am to 5:30 pm. 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 a 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. Various play-based activities help children build social, emotional, physical, and cognitive skills through positive, hands-on playing experiences focusing 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 across the street from the Stanislaus County Library and down the street from the Gallo Center of the Arts.


Payments are collected through checks or electronic funds transfers.   Tuition payments are due on the 1st of each month. A late fee of 10% is charged after the 10th of the month. Parents also have the option to pay on a weekly or biweekly schedule, should this be necessary. 


A non-refundable Enrollment Fee of $135 is due for each student annually, September through August. A pro-rated enrollment fee for students starting after September will be charged for the first year.


A discount of 10% is given off the preschool tuition for siblings of an enrolled child. 

A discount of 10% is given off the preschool tuition for enrolled children of church members. 

A discount of 50% is given off the preschool tuition for employees of First UMC and Tiny Tots Preschool.
