COVID-19 and TPP

In accordance with the directive from Governor Hogan for Maryland Public Schools to stay closed until the end of this school year, the Towson Presbyterian Preschool has remained closed. We plan to open in the fall and we are awaiting updated guidance from the state of Maryland and the Office of Child Care regarding any updated procedures we will need to follow. These would be in addition to increased cleaning practices, wearing face masks, frequent hand washing, limiting the number of people in the school, temperature checks at drop off and smaller class sizes. Please know that we do not make any decisions lightly as we know the closures related to the pandemic bring great difficulty for many of your family situations however, we will follow the guidance of the experts in order to maintain a safe environment for our staff and families.

About Us

Our school was incorporated and opened its doors in September of 1958 with two classrooms and a staff of four. Fifty-plus years later, TPP has evolved into 8 classrooms and a staff of 20.

Our Philosophy

We believe that the early childhood experiences are crucial ones for each child.  To ensure that children’s needs are met, we place emphasis on developmental theory and research-based best practices.  With a careful combination of cognitive skills and developmentally appropriate tasks, we create a relaxed environment that stimulates curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.  Through free and guided play, children learn not just content, but also critical thinking skills, to collaborate with others, to be innovative thinkers, to communicate easily and well, and to be confident in their abilities – all skills which will carry students into 21st century learning.  With our small class sizes combined with a small child-to-staff ratio, we offer the kind of individual attention each child deserves.
