At Thumbelina Nursery School, we believe children will grow and learn at their own pace while being given an environment that meets all of their needs.
We provide a stable and secure environment. Our daily schedule is very routine so the children know where and when activities are. When a child feels secure, he/she will feel more at ease to explore, learn, and play.
Our dedicated, fully-credentialed staff strives to provide a nurturing, supportive, and enthusiastic atmosphere that is so important to promoting learning.
Thumbelina's staff has been here for over 17 years. Our hard work and dedication lives on through the years. This can be seen through the former children/students that are now bringing the next generation of children to Thumbelina.
Our Goals here at Thumbelina are to provide a safe, stimulating, and loving environment that fosters confidence and affords each child the opportunity to develop in all areas; physical, emotional, social, creative, and cognitive.
We are a state licensed facility. We are also a member of PACE - The Professional Association of Childhood Education.
Our 17 year staff is comprised of a group of dedicated teachers who not only have college degrees, but are also certified in Early Childhood Education as well. They are also certified in First Aid and CPR.

We provide a nutritious lunch and a AM & PM snack for the full-time children, and an AM snack for the part-time children.
