We include a structured, well-balanced Preschool learning program each morning for the toddler through Pre-K classes, followed by lunch, a rest, and an afternoon of more fun, learning activities.

We have really enjoyed our time at Wee Care. Our son is so excited to go to school every day! He is always talking about his teachers and friends. Wee Care has wonderful teachers who care about their students. We are so grateful we have found s wonderful daycare!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Peppermint Preschool and their staff. My daughter and son both went/go there and because of the wonderful teachers and staff they LOVE going to school. I am always impressed how clean the facility is and the steps they take to keep it and our kids safe. The teachers are so wonderful, patient, fun and loving. My children talk about how much they love Ms. Tara and Ms. Amanda daily. I will ALWAYS recommend Peppermint Preschool to anyone looking. I give them a 5 star review and plus some!
We LOVE Peppermint Preschool and all the teachers. Peppermint Preschool helps with social, cognitive, and physical skills that are needed to start kindergarten. We enjoy being able to start our kids at age 3 and watching the progress through age 4. As a Peppermint Preschool alumni, it is also fun to see my kids play and learn where I did years ago!
We've trusted Wee Care with both our kids and have had nothing but great experiences there! The staff is kind and seem to really care about all of the kids. The administration is organized, proactive, and always will to hear a parent concerns or questions. It's a wonderful program overall and I would recommend it to anyone.
