Almost Kindergarten at Peppermint Preschool is a great program. We have had the pleasure of sending both of our children through this program. This program is wonderful, as it provides a kindergarten structure. Our children love going to school every day and always enjoy seeing the teachers and staff. They have been taught and given tools that will be useful as they advance through kindergarten. It is always amazing how they go from not being able to write fluently to writing with purpose.
The EvuCC Peppermint Preschool program has been an amazing experience for our son. His first year in the 3yr old program was fantastic! He absolutely loved going to school on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s with Ms Tara, Ms Linda, and Ms Elaine. He wouldn’t ever stop talking about school and his great teachers! He was very sad that he had to move on to the AK program and not get to have his old teachers, however he absolutely loves his new teachers as well! The AK program is so great. The number of things that they have learned so far has made me so happy that he is in this program. Makes me so happy that he is going to be well over prepared when he gets into Kindergarten! We absolutely love Peppermint and it makes us so happy that we are able to leave our child in the teacher’s hands and he is well taken care of. As a parent it is a big relief. Thank you for all that everyone in the program does!
Peppermint Preschool is a great place to start your child's schooling adventure! The teachers are caring and patient. Most of all, my kids talk about the fun activities they get to do at school. I wouldn't send my children anywhere but Peppermint.
Peppermint Preschool is a wonderful nurturing environment filled with highly qualified and talented teachers and assistants. My older three children received an excellent start to their formal education at Peppermint. They thrived there. For instance, they were eager to go each morning and when it was time to go home, they were happy and excited to talk about their day. I have no doubt, because of their experience at Peppermint, it better prepared them emotionally and intellectually to face the challenges of school and life beyond. My fourth child is currently in the Tuesday/Thursday program with Ms. Tara. She is receiving the same preparedness and quality education as my other three children. I can truly say Peppermint Preschool has been a huge part of my children’s lives. Their experience at Peppermint will remain in their memories as a special place where learning was fun!
