Tom Thumb: Where Educations Begins
Tom Thumb Preschool offers educational programs for children 2 through 5 years old. Our facilities are designed to provide an exceptional learning environment. Since we are usually the first school your child will attend, our programs are developed to ensure that education is a positive experience, rewarding and fun. For parents who need it, we provide before and after school care. We make education and child development a fun learning experience at an affordable price.

All our specialists in Music, Drumming, French, Science and Dance are professionals in their field.

Our staff is constantly learning by regularly attending advanced workshops in education and psychology. Since our inception, our programs have continually improved. We relentlessly pursue "excellence in education" and better ways to serve our children! We are dedicated to the next generation of great Americans.
Our school was established in September of 1968 and was founded by Nancy Brophy, who has been the only owner and Director. Her vision of Tom Thumb is to provide "excellence in education" for the very young. Our mission: is to discover the individuality and strengths of children and develop their critical thinking and social skills to ensure they reach their full potential.

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.
