History of Tiny Tots
Tiny Tots preschool hits a milestone this school year as it turns 40 years old. The popular preschool is home to over 100 students every year but it had a very humble beginning. Tiny Tots was introduced in the 1970’s as an eight week play gym program run out of the United Church and stayed there until it burned down in 1985. Tiny Tots became licensed in 1977 and has evolved into one of the most popular programs for preschool aged children and still resides in the Boys and Girls Club building.
