Early education sets the foundation for lifelong learning. During the preschool years, your child will grow in astounding ways, building those critical foundations, developing an identity in Christ, and maturing socially, emotionally, and physically. St. Timothy’s Christian Preschool partners with families during this important developmental period, providing a safe, nurturing environment and reinforcing the Christian values first taught at home.
We are pleased to offer classes for two, three, and four-year-olds including Jr. Kindergarten class. Each class offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum, compassionate teachers, and exciting, hands-on learning opportunities. Multiple schedule options are available to meet the needs of each family. Choose a two-day, three-day, or five-day schedule, as well as half-day or full-day classes. We also offer before school care and after school care in our preschool Enrichment/Plus program.
We are located in the San Francisco Bay Area in South San Jose near the intersection of Highway 85 and Camden Ave. We have a big, beautiful campus and would love to show you around!

Since 1979, our students have thrived in a nurturing and Christ-centered learning environment. We believe the best preschool program is designed to support the whole child in accordance with the concept that children are developing in several areas simultaneously and that each of these areas of development is equally important to the child.
What our parents say about us:
My daughter is in this wonderful preschool and we couldn’t be happier with the loving, hands on and learning environment of this school! -Jennifer
Both of my children attend preschool at St. Timothy’s Christian Preschool. We could not be happier with the quality of education they receive (even at a young age), balanced with Christ centered learning, and love for each child expressed by their teachers. We like the small class sizes and attentiveness of the entire staff to our individual child’s education! I would highly recommend this school (and church) for anyone looking for a new school for their children! -Josh
My son started at St Timothy’s last fall in the Preschool 2s class. It has been absolutely wonderful and I can’t wait for him to continue here for the next few years. The teachers are caring and engaged, the kids are exposed to so many creative and educational activities – a great balance between play and curriculum, the school environment is warm and friendly and the classrooms are a perfect learning environment. It’s a true preschool. We have been so, so happy with our decision to enroll our son here.-Janel
Excellent environment to teach faith-based curriculum and develop a child’s sense of self, play, and nurturing creative thinkers. Check it out, you’ll be glad you did! -Akeem
