Wee Care provides all day care for your children ages 6 weeks to Kindergarten. We include a structured, well-balanced Pre-School program each morning for the toddler through Pre-K classes. Peppermint School provides a structured, learning environment for 3-5-year old’s through a half day program. Our entire facility is licensed by the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services. Hot, healthy lunches from our kitchen are provided for the children who attend our all-day program. We are equipped with a security system and cameras to keep our children and families safe. All staff are CPR and First Aid trained as well as professionally background checked. All staff continually attend professional development training to stay updated on the latest information concerning children, families, health, and educational needs.
We are glad to have Peppermint Preschool in our lives! After moving to Highland, our oldest son attended the 4 year old class and our daughter is currently in her second year and loves it. We feel that the quality of teaching at Peppermint helps lead to being well prepared for kindergarten. The communication from the staff is organized and detailed; the teachers are caring and approachable; the environment is safe and inviting; and the activities are purposeful, engaging and fun. We look forward to sending our third child to Peppermint as well!
We absolutely love Wee Care! We have been going for almost a year. Our son has learned so much in Miss Donna's class and loves going! Our daughter has started taking so much more and is learning a lot too in her class! We love all the teachers and wouldn't change a thing!
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!
Our oldest started at Wee Care Day Care right at 1 year old. Coming from an in-home daycare, we were worried about all the typical transitions that might accompany such a big change, but we were quickly shown how caring each and every one of the staff are at Wee Care. A year or two later, our 12 week old joined Wee Care. On top of caring for our children, the teachers have worked alongside us, as parents, to help problem solve and get through some of those rough/tricky times that ultimately come along with having little ones, in general. They continue to go above and beyond our expectation and never fail to treat our kids like their own. As our boys are getting older, we are continuously shown that these trends are the core value of Wee Care. We thank our lucky stars daily that our boys are part of the Wee Care family!
