Tom Thumb Preschool Tuition for Juniors and Seniors


Tom Thumb’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. Tom Thumb does not charge a registration fee. There are no additional fees (except for graduation).

Upon registering your deposit of $100 will be credited to June’s tuition payment, your second payment will be due on the first of September. Please make your checks payable to Tom Thumb Preschool. We accept major credit cards and most debit cards.

Tuition Rates: For the school year (Tom Thumb offers a 20% discount for a second child in the program. If either parent was a Tom Thumb graduate, they receive a 10% discount.) Only 1 discount offered per family
