I have had the privilege of sending 3 of my children to Peppermint Preschool. At Peppermint, my children learned to compromise in order to solve conflict, demonstrate compassion, and take pride in not only their accomplishments, but the accomplishments of their peers. The teachers and staff are professional, courteous, creative, and patient. I always feel comfortable leaving my child at school , knowing they are not only being taught age appropriate academic skills, but also are allowed to play, dance, and create! The tuition is affordable, the joy is contagious, and the memories are priceless. Enroll your child at Peppermint Preschool so they get the best start to their education!
My oldest two children started with Peppermint in the 3's class and spent two years there. The teachers there are caring and flexible, and they have exceeded my expectations in preparing my kids for kindergarten. My second child is shy and on orientation day interacted with no one. Within the first week he is making friends and talking constantly about Ms. Tara. I could not have asked for a better experience for my children.
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!
My family loves Wee Care and absolutely adores everyone that works with our kiddos. When we were thinking of moving to Highland, I knew we were making the right decision after speaking with the director and touring the facility. Both of my children have excelled in their program, but more importantly have been loved and well cared for by the staff. My son is in grade school now, but still likes coming with me to pick up his little sis, so he can give his favorite teacher a hug! The teachers and all they do with the kids are often a topic of conversation in our household. It's very apparent the staff at Wee Care is dong a wonderful job, so that I can do mine as a mother with a full-time career. I can't recommend the day care enough!
