Tiny timbers Director

& assistant Director


Tiny Timbers is pleased to welcome Cindy Seitz as the director. I am Cindy Seitz and I am looking forward to a new and exciting year, working with the Tiny Timbers Committee, staff, students and their families here at Tiny Timbers Christian Preschool.

This is our 20th year and God has been by our side all the way. Give thanks to the Lord our God and King. His Love endures forever.

It makes my day to see the smiles on the student's faces as they run up the steps at Tiny Timbers to join their friends on the bench inside the door. No wonder Jesus tells us to be like little children.

I have been a member of West Green Tree ever since I can remember. The warmth of love that surrounds me at West Green Tree is great and I pray you will feel it also. 

I am married with two sons, one daughter in law and one sweet one year old granddaughter. I have been with Tiny Timbers for eight years , took off a year, and have returned.


Sarah Clugston is part of the assistant director team and cares for tuition.
