Time For Tots Preschool and Kinder Prep has been ministry of Tri-City Baptist Church since 1973. Throughout our time in Tempe and Chandler, TFT has cultivated a rich history of childcare in our service to the families of the East Valley.

Throughout the years, our mission has been to build a learning atmosphere patterned after how Christ learned.

“Jesus grew in wisdom, in stature, in favor with God, and in favor with man.” Luke 2:52


Exalt. Edify. Evangelize.

As a ministry of Tri-City Baptist Church,
Time For Tots strives…

  • to exalt the Lord
  • to edify the TFT families
  • to evangelize our community with Bible truth

One Ministry

Ephesians 4:4-6

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one LORD, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Time For Tots Preschool and Kinder Prep
is one entity of the Tri-City Ministries family. 


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.


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.
