Now Enrolling!


Welcome to Tiny Tots Preschool – a loving, faith-based Modesto preschool that has enriched 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 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. We offer full-time, part-time, and morning enrichment programs and are open year-round. We are closed for 14 legal holidays.


Our program encourages overall good hygiene, including toileting and hand-washing. We also provide a diapering service for children who are 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 road 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 5th of the month. Parents also have the option to pay on a weekly or biweekly schedule, should this be necessary. 

Monthly Tuition Payments

Monthly payments are due on the 1st of each month. If not paid in full by the 5th business day of

the month, a 10% late fee will be charged to any remaining balance on your account.


Semi-Monthly Tuition Payments

Parents have the option to pay on a semi-monthly schedule but will be subjected to a 10% administrative fee for choosing this option. The administrative fee will be 10% of your child’s total tuition. Semi-monthly payments are due on the 1st and 15th of the month. The first half of the tuition must be paid by the 1st of the month or will be subject to a 10% later fee. The second half of the payment (remaining balance) must be paid by the 15th of the month or will be subject to an additional 10% late fee. 


A nonrefundable materials fee of $150 is due for each student annually, August through July. A pro-rated fee will be charged for students starting after September for the first year.
