Multi-age = multi-fun
All classes at Thumbelina are offered for children ages 3–5. We believe that this multi-age classroom greatly benefits the learning of all children involved.
- Children have the opportunity to form friendships and learn with children of a variety of ages, developmental levels, abilities and interests.
It allows siblings to attend classes together.
Younger children benefit from being guided and challenged by the older children and the older childrens’ skills and knowledge are strengthened through teaching and caring for the younger ones.
The older students are excellent role models for the younger ones and the older children learn patience and empathy for their younger friends.
The multi-age classes also allow flexibility in each student’s class schedule, i.e. each student can attend the number of classes per week that they are ready for.
Forms are available at Thumbelina. Please bring immunization records, the registration fee (cash or cheque), and a post-dated cheque for first month's tuition.
The supplies fee helps to cover the cost of supplies such as paint, paper, craft materials, extra programs etc. as well as help in replacing and buying new toys and equipment.
Note: classes are not drop-in. We ask that students keep a consistent schedule throughout the year.
Classes are offered Monday to Friday
Our sessions run from 8:50am–3:20pm
