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.
Peppermint Preschool has been a wonderful experience for our family and was the best decision we could have made for our girls. The teachers are top notch and treat each child as if they were their own. Both girls have loved going to school here every day. You get the opportunity to meet so many great families from the community as well. We are so glad we sent our girls here and highly recommend it!
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.
We chose Peppermint Preschool based solely on recommendation; but now that our daughter is in her second year at Peppermint there is no question as to why the school has such an outstanding recommendations- it is second to none! Not only is our daughter learning and thriving academically and socially, she is loved and valued by all of the staff at Peppermint. Each adult has taken the time to get to know her and develop a relationship with our family. Our daughter is excited to go to school each day, and comes home eager to share about her school days. We are so thankful to have found Peppermint and are eager to enroll our second child next fall!
