  • I started at Chesterfield Tom Thumb Day Care Center at the age of 9 months, and currently volunteer over the summer... I enjoy being around the Savage family because they have taken me in as one of their own. Most of all I enjoy being around all the staff and the children.

  • My cousin and I attended this school when we were little and i loved it. I enjoyed going to school everyday. I cried when i realized that i would not be returning, as i was going to first grade the following fall. All of the teachers were wonderful and i greatly appreciate the care and attention i recieved. I have visited since then and i hope to work there during the summer.

  • I attended Tom Thumb Nursery School with Brett, Mrs. Savage's son. I pass by there quite often and I'm thrilled to see that the school is still there and that Brett is now the director.

  • OMG... Chesterfield Tom Thumb Day Care Center was the first day care that I worked at. Mrs. Savage was a great woman and ran a tight ship, she was the best icon for me to follow. I have opened a day care of my own and think of her often. I loved working with Pookie,and Sherry. God bless them all.. Traja Bailey
