We make learning fun


Here at Thumbelina, each child and their family is respected and valued. They are encouraged to respect and value each other, while gaining the skills needed to express themselves and communicate with others, think creatively, explore the world around them, and become life-long learners.

We believe that young children learn through playing and interacting with a diverse range of play and learning materials as well as children and adults.

Play is the highest form of research.
— Albert Einstein
