Owners Mary and Linda Brennan have operated Tom Thumb
Child Care Center for over 30 years.  Once exclusive to Saint
Margaret Mercy Health Care Center employees, Tom Thumb now
is making spaces available to the general public.  We also accept
Illinois Action for Children.

The ratio of our staff to child is set forth by the State of Illinois
Children and Family Services and will be followed by Tom Thumb
to the extent that we feel is quality care.   The current staff has
been with Tom Thumb for many years.  Tom Thumb will try to
maintain the highest quality standards and always look for the
best ways and methods to care for your child.

Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 6:00 am
to 6:00 pm.
