Through-the-Week School (TTWS) opened in 1955 as a mission of Myers Park Baptist Church to provide quality preschool education “through the week”. Our philosophy, “We Play to Learn”, is based on the understanding that optimal learning occurs as children play.
At TTWS children are offered open-ended, developmentally appropriate opportunities for cognitive, emotional, social, physical and intellectual growth.
Our curriculum is enriched throughout the year with fun and educational activities. Each of the activities are designed to meet the specific needs of development and growth for the age groups.
