Tom Thumb PreschoolThumBelina Program
Tom Thumb’s “Terrific Twos“
ThumBelina – First School for Twos
For Children Starting at Age 2 Years Old by November 30th
ThumBelina’s classroom and playgrounds are designed specifically for two years olds.
ThumBelina is a wonderful place to grow with loving care, fun, play, and learning. We are way beyond child-care. We are a preschool and skilled and experienced with this age group.
Just consider ThumBelina as “A Home Away from Home” completely devoted to the needs of younger children.
ThumBelina’s goal is to enhance your child’s educational and social skills while concurrently improving their body movement, motor skills, and dexterity. We go far beyond the typical daycare programs by immersing our students into the ThumBelina Learning Environment designed expertly for this age.
Our program provides a fresh new approach geared to help children grow mentally, physically, and socially.
Your child is precious, and the first 5 years of their life determine who they will become. Consider what’s best for your child and the program that will best help them grow. We think you will be pleasantly surprised to know ThumBelina delivers a quality education that you can trust at a reasonable price.
Our Facilities are Designed Specifically for Two-Year-Olds

Delayed Opening Policy for Stay and Play Safely Club, ThumBelina & Tom Thumb Students
We operate only on those days when the Lakeland Central School District has classes in session. When Lakeland has delayed openings, we will delay 1 hour only. Our “Before School Care” program will open at 7:30 AM for those registered for this program. When Lakeland closes early due to weather, we allow working parents enough time to make arrangements for pick-up. We trust parents will come as soon as possible.
