Tom Thumb is a Fun Place to Learn

Tom Thumb is a place of learning that doesn't subscribe to a single ideology or one method of education. We have selected the best ideas and practices from different educational systems and with our experience and expertise have developed a unique curriculum that defines Tom Thumb. Our school provides the atmosphere and opportunity for each student to develop social skills and learn the basic concepts necessary for success. By using our approach and the "Power of Play" the learning experience is both fun and rewarding.

How Important is a Preschool Education?


The first 5 years of life, define a person more than the total of all the remaining years of life. Education is the strongest single factor that will affect your child's development and create a foundation for learning, accomplishments and future success.


Education at this early age is the most precious gift you can give your child to help succeed in life. Tom Thumb educational programs will help develop your child: intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. We not only focus on kindergarten readiness but the development of lifetime skills.
