You and your school have been such an important part of my family’s lives for so many years now, and we appreciate your dedication and hard work. Especially with how last year ended & this year shaped out to be, you continue to show your excellence & diligence. We love Tom Thumb & will always hold it in our hearts.

Dear Mrs. Brophy,
We’re so happy we decided to enroll our son at Tom Thumb this year. This was his first school experience & his first time being away from family. He was so nervous! Your teachers were so patient and kind to him and made the transition easier for us. He loves coming to school now and is starting to come out of his shell. My older son comes to the Before Care and loves it here too.
Thank you for creating a caring environment for little ones to grow and learn. Have a very Merry Christmas!
Thank you for all you do!

The Benefit of Tom Thumb’s “Gift of Time” Program
The Gift of Time” Program is for students turning five years old by November 30th and eligible for Kindergarten next September. A child’s readiness for school is highly correlated to his or her emotional and social maturity. This program gives them more time to mature and excel.
“Thank you, Nancy, for his preschool foundation. You are always in our thoughts and hearts. We appreciate the “Gift of Time” for Thomas now that he is in his senior year of high school. It was proven to be the right choice. He is getting ready to attend Dartmouth University in August 2019.” paraphrased from information provided by Thomas’ Mother.
