TOTS Preschool

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and don’t prevent them. For of such is the Kingdom of Heaven. “   Matthew 19:14

 

History
TOTS has been an extended ministry of Bethel Baptist Church since 1977.
Program
TOTS is a pre-school for children 18 months to pre-kindergarten.
 We believe that each child should become aware that they are a unique individual created by and in the image of God, so that they will begin to grow up secure in the knowledge that God loves them.
Our objective is to give each child a chance as an individual to learn, create, discover and grow through experiences appropriate to the child’s ability.
We offer many pre-academic and developmental concepts to our students. At the same time, we strive to help the children have a good self-concept and a positive feeling about school; this will carry over into their kindergarten year and help make learning a fun experience.

State Certified Program
TOTS is a state certified program. To be certified by the State of New Mexico a program must be in complete compliance with state regulations, which are set up by the Child Care Licensing Bureau.
 
Our program is annually reviewed by The State Licensing Authorities to ensure the program meets standards to protect the health, safety and development of the children. Guidelines are also set down to assure children are given the proper developmental opportunities appropriate to their age, which will promote positive growth and well being and increase the child’s social emotional and physical as well as intellectual development.
