About Our Staff

Nancy Brophy and Ann Gaspari having a school discussion The Tom Thumb staff is our hard working team and extended family of 35 professionals. They consistently deliver the excellent early education that we have been praised for more than 4 decades. Our dedicated staff energetically carries out Tom Thumb programs  in a fun way to achieve our goals.

Tom Thumb's continuous emphasis on using and refining teamwork skills is why our staff is different. We believe teamwork is the fuel that allows us to attain uncommon results. At Tom Thumb we know this is an important reason our programs are excellent and lead to  "school success".

Tom Thumb's staff has always thrived as a working team of educators to achieve the best results possible for our students. As the Director, I have been fortunate to have a qualified staff who share my mission. There is a very special joy working with such a supportive team of professionals.

All of us at Tom Thumb are nurturing and encouraging children to love to learn and to say "I can do it." At the end of each year we are all very proud of the children's growth and achievements. We are also thankful to our children for what they have taught us.


Tom Thumb's staff is qualified and experienced above the norm of regular preschools. Our teachers have either a BS or MS degree with a range of teaching experience between 7 years to 20 years. Many of my assistant teachers are college graduates. Most of their children have graduated from Tom Thumb Preschool. All of the Tom Thumb staff continue to receive ongoing training in child development and preschool education each year. All of our 7 specialists excel in their individual areas of expertise.


With the assistance of my dedicated staff, we will endeavor to continue to educate and enrich the lives of our students with the same commitment and enthusiasm that has marked our first 45 years.
