Thundering Tot's Preschool has been established as a teaching facility for high school students who are interested in early childhood related careers.  Trained and prepared high school students teach the preschool classes and work daily with children in different learning situations.  All classes have supervising adults with them at all times.

High School students will prepare lesson for Preschool Children enrolled in the program.  They will develop these lessons using The World of Wonders Preschool Curriculum.  All lessons plans will be graded by the instructor prior to them being taught in the Preschool to ensure that the best educational experience for Preschool Children is provided.  

Our goal is to provide children with a caring and enriching environment that will encourage their growth and development. We believe that each child is a unique individual. We are sensitive to a child's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. We provide developmentally-appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences. We encourage not just learning, but the love of learning. 

We are currently full for the 2023-24 school year.  We follow the Alpine School District A/B Calendar and are  open for Preschool from 9:20 am-11:50 am, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  For more information regarding our schedule please see the Calendar & Schedule.

We are currently full  for the 2023-2024 school year and for the 2024-2025 school year.  For more detailed information please visit our Enrollment Section.
