Our Story

St. Thomas' Preschool is an integral part of the life St. Thomas' Episcopal Church and is an outgrowth of its pastoral programs and mission. St.Thomas' Preschool formally changed it's name from Brown Memorial Preschool / Brown Memorial Weekday School after a move to St. Thomas' Church in 2018. The school began operating in 1963 at its previous location 6200 N. Charles Street on the Campus of Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church.
For over 50 years, the school has served preschool and kindergarten aged children and their families by providing rich early childhood learning experiences within a developmentally appropriate framework.
Although we are a mission of a church, religious instruction is not part of the school curriculum. There are voluntary monthly chapels that are based on universal values such as love, kindness and sharing and are designed to be respectful of multiple faith traditions. References to God might be made on occasion as part of a grace before snack in a classroom or in the context of a chapel. We embrace our diverse school community and believe that these differences make us a more vibrant and rich community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support young children in reaching their full potential by providing a vibrant and innovative learning community. It is our belief that exploration, creativity, and collaboration inspire the healthy development of a child's physical, social, emotional and cognitive capacities.

Our Staff

Our teachers and administrative staff at St. Thomas' Preschool are highly qualified both in terms of formal education and years of experience working with children. Feel free to reach out or connect anytime!

Our Philosophy

Safe Atmosphere

To achieve our mission, we strive to create a safe, accepting, and inviting environment that encourages children to be curious, take risks and enjoy new experiences.


We respect the pace of childhood and understand that true exploration, creativity, and learning takes time.

Personal Uniqueness

We value teachers who understand the importance of knowing and honoring the individual character and spirit of each child.

Model Respect

We expect teachers to model respect for differences and the recognition that multiple perspectives inform the human experience.


Children are encouraged to think creatively and transform ideas into action through cooperation and collaboration with peers and teachers.


The purposeful use of a variety of classroom materials is central to this process.


We value the involvement of parents and extended family members and understand that a child's development has its roots firmly planted in their home lives, their communities, and their cultures.


We engage the help of parents in achieving our mission by partnering with them as we work with their children to foster positive growth and by welcoming them openly into the life of the school.
