Quality Education for two- year- old at a single reasonable price with no hidden fees .

Preschool for Toddlers (for 2 Year Olds)

ThumBelina’s tuition is a yearly figure based on a ten-month school calendar year (not a corporate year). We offer a budget plan of ten equal monthly payments due the first of each month. ThumBelina does not charge a registration fee. There are no additional fees for our special programs.

Upon registration a $100 deposit is due; this deposit will be credited to June’s monthly tuition payment. Your first payment will be due on the first of September. Please make your checks payable to Tom Thumb Preschool. We also accept all major credit cards and most debit cards.

Tuition Discounts: For the school year,  Tom Thumb offers up to a 20% discount for a second child in the ThumBelina program or parents that have graduated from Tom Thumb, receive a 10% discount. Only one discount is offered per family.
