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.

Parent Resources

Feel free to refer to the Parent Handbook for a detailed description of our approach, policies and procedures. Below is a brief overview of the common questions we get from parents like you who are looking for a great preschool for their children.


What is the average class size?

We strive for 12-16 children in the 4-year-old classes, 9 to 12 children in the 3-year-old classes, and up to 10 in our 2-year-old classes. In all classes, there are two adults in the classroom.

What is a typical day like for children?

A typical day includes free play, work time, snack, story and group time, outdoor time, music, and other activities. We plan our schedules carefully to allow time for socialization, active physical play, as well as small and large group activities.

Which curriculum do we use?

Several years ago, the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) mandated that all preschools choose one of five recommended curriculums. We chose Creative Curriculum (Teaching Strategies). This curriculum was an easy choice for us since it dovetailed beautifully with our philosophy of developmentally appropriate practice and TPP’s own curriculum which we had had in place with MSDE for many, many years. Creative Curriculum thoroughly covers the areas of literacy, math, science, social studies and the arts. This curriculum is enhanced with other available resources including the experiences brought to the classroom by the teaching staff.

How do we assess children’s progress?

Assessments are made through observation by watching, listening and studying children’s work. This allows our teachers to learn how a child approaches a task, communicates his thoughts, handles materials and socializes with others. Our teachers document all this information and then use it to compile a report for your review.
