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 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 have loved our experience at Peppermint Preschool. This is our first year of attending and couldn't imagine our son being anywhere else. He looks forward to going to preschool every day and seeing his friends. He has learned so many amazing academic skills, and thinking skills from his teachers! We are thankful for the opportunity to send our son here and would highly recommend Peppermint Preschool!
Our son has gone to Wee Care since he was a year old. He loves going to daycare to see all of the amazing teachers and staff. Each staff member treats our son as their own. His development is way ahead of other preschool students at different facilities because of the amazing teachers at Wee Care. We are blessed to have such a wonderful daycare in our small community of Highland. Thanks for all you do!
