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 continually attend professional development training to stay updated on the latest information concerning children, families, health, and educational needs.
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!
Ten years ago, Peppermint Preschool came to us highly recommended when we were looking to place our first-born child in preschool. Fast forward to today, and we're on our third child enrolled. Peppermint has prepared our children exceptionally for Kindergarten and the first primary grades-not only educationally, but socially as well. Throughout our children's years at Peppermint, the staff has always been attentive, patient, genuinely interested in our children's success, and put their safety as an utmost priority. We highly recommend Peppermint and feel fortunate that our children have access to such an exceptional preschool. We couldn't think of a better place to start their educational journey and their time there has left us with memories our family will always remember.
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.
