And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7

TFT’s History

Time For Tots was established in 1973 to provide a warm and loving atmosphere for children when they are away from home and family. We are a private, non-profit Christian preschool located in the East Valley. 

TFT’s purpose is to partner with parents to provide a safe and nurturing place for children to develop physically, learn academically, mature emotionally, live respectfully, and love biblically.

Time For Tots moved from Tempe to Chandler in 2010, located on the Tri-City Ministries Baptist Church property on the intersection of Dobson and Germann, Time for Tots has an inviting and expansive facility to meet the developmental needs of our children.

We look forward to continuing the Godly heritage of spiritual and intellectual growth to the families and  children.

TFT’s Facility

In 2010 we moved to our current location on the southwest corner of Dobson and Germann Road in Chandler.  Conveniently located off the intersection of the 101 and South 202 Loop, our campus offers a prime location for commuting parents. 

Our facility offers a safe environment secured by our ProCare fingerprint entry system. 

In 2019 we installed a new developmentally appropriate playground for ages 1 to 5 and a sunshade was added in the fall of 2021. 

In the spring of 2021 we updated the classrom furniture for the 3’s and 4’s. 

Time For Tots is fully licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS). ADHS makes annual inspections of our premises.
