Just consider ThumBelina as "A Home Away from Home" completely devoted to the needs of two year olds.

ThumBelina is a child development program to enhance educational and social skills, while concurrently improving their body movement, motor skills and dexterity of twos. We go far beyond the typical toddler program of day-care by immersing our students into the ThumBelina Learning Environment designed expertly for this age.

Our program provides a fresh new approach especially geared to helping two years olds grow mentally, physically and socially.

Your child is precious and the first 5 years of their life determines who they will become. Consider what’s best for your child and the program that will best help him or her grow. We think you will be pleasantly surprised to know ThumBelina delivers a quality education that you can trust at a very reasonable price.

Tom Thumb's "Terrific Twos"
Tom Thumb Building

We are a leader in preschool educations for decades and have developed in 2010 ThumBelina -- Terrific Twos Program with the quality you expect.


Although our programs includes day-care services, we are a private school with experienced New York State Department of Education accredited teachers and certified by the State of New York Social Services.


Don’t be fooled with preschools with large marketing budgets with a script sent by corporate and staffed with limited educational and child development experience. Your child deserves the best quality education and care available.
