Toddlers are movers. We channel their energy and excitement into positive early education learning experiences. As children’s mobility grows, we give them plenty of room to move and discover. We also guide them toward developing new physical skills and achieving emerging milestones.
When you’re an active, enthusiastic 2-year-old, the world is your playground! We funnel that enthusiasm into chances to learn, grow, and build confidence and independence. Through our early education program, we offer our 2-year-old learners interactive, hands on learning experiences.
We’ve cleared a footpath to Preschool with our Three’s program. It’s built to meet the needs of 30- to 42-month-old children. We guide them toward working with others, following directions, following established routines, and developing a skill set that will turn them into independent learners.
Pre-K classes provide children with the skills they need for elementary school. Here, your child will learn effective communication, work in groups and independently, and develop a deeper understanding of their world. We teach our children:
- Responsive listening
- Using language to learn
- Social & collaborative skills
The format and structure of a day in kindergarten is introduced, as we help children to develop critical skills for elementary school success. This program offers kindergarten-level lessons in reading, writing, and math. This classroom provides young 5-year-olds and older 4-year-olds with a strong focus on:
- Following multi-step instructions
- Finding multiple ways to solve problems
- Organizing work
- Controlling impulses and sustaining attention
Our Mission & Philosophy
Tot Stop is a preschool with a vision. Like most child care facilities, we are concerned with the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of our students. Our vision is to reach the whole family and enrich our community. To advance that vision, we have developed the Family Resource Center. We have found an effective way to carry out the idea of reaching into families of the community with resources that can help them succeed.
Tot Stop is a state licensed preschool and kindergarten run by a fully qualified staff of educators to provide each child the basics needed to grow up and succeed in life. We believe that a child will learn effectively from a foundation built on love and affection in a loving, safe, and healthy environment.
We promote our students self esteem through a program of creativity and individuality. Tot Stop is a hands-on center that will help each student to develop motor skills, socialization skills, and personal growth. Tot Stop believes that the most important service that we can provide your child is an atmosphere in which your child can learn and develop to the best of their ability while away from home.

What Parents are Saying
“Great facility! My son loves going there and gets so excited when we arrive. Staff is great! Everyone is very kind and accommodating. They are also very good about doing crafts with the kids- always a special keepsake to bring home.”
“My family decided to start a new adventure in another state and I probably would have moved sooner if it wasn’t for tot stop. It was the stability every parent wants for their children. It put a smile on my girls’ faces everyday at drop off and they would come excited to tell us what they learned. My Christmas tree has tons of homemade ornaments and I literally have boxes of art projects to look back on when my girls are older. We loved this school. Every parent I met loves this school. If we move back, I’ll be back on the waiting list for my youngest.
Go take a tour, I signed up 30 mins later and am so so thankful I did.”
“Tot stop is a great school! Will have sent 2 of of our children to this school. They learn so much. The school Director and the teachers are great, super hands on and care about your kids.we will be sending our youngest child to this school in the fall.“
