Tom Thumb is great. It's been run by the same woman (Nancy Brophy) the whole forty years it's been in business. The teachers are mature and VERY experienced--many of them have children who attend(ed) Tom Thumb. They understand how children learn, and they foster an enriching, loving and fun environment. Your child will have the benefit of good old-fashioned toys, a huge outdoor playground, art, music, drumming, French, Spanish, dance, phys ed and gymnastics. Tom Thumb may not have all brand spanking new toys or equipment, but children don't need that. if you want a fancy schmancy preschool that will try to convince you your child is doomed to pump gas if they don't attend there, you should look elsewhere. If you value a structured environment dedicated to preparing your child academically, socially and emotionally for kindergarten, you'll love Tom Thumb, as do I, my husband and our 2 kids.
