The Tiny Tots Preschool has been cleared for reopening on Tuesday, July 14, 2020.

The Board of Directors has implemented protocols to ensure the safety and health of your children. We offer families a safe, loving, and developmentally appropriate environment that protects young children and enables learning in these certain times.


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 4:00pm. 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 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 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.
