Here's what some of our families have to say

"I can't say enough about everyone at Peppermint. We have been going there for almost 4 years and my kids love to be there. It makes it so much easier when I have to leave them there. The class sizes are perfect. The Kindergarten program is top notch."

- The Yates Family

"I have a daughter with very special needs and severe medical conditions, and I find it very comforting to be able to leave her with the staff at Peppermint Stick, knowing that she is in good hands and a caring staff. If she weren't home with me, the only place I would have her would be there at school."

- The Trafford Family

"My 2 year old granddaughter was used to adults and needed the socialization of children her age. Checking out daycare providers and preschools was not easy until I contacted Peppermint Stick. Tiffany and her staff know the needs of children as individuals and show the same care and love as if every child is their own. Hannah enjoys going to school to play, learn and have a snack. Ms. Diane or Ms. Carol are always standing with open arms for Hannah to go to. I am relieved to find such genuine, caring, loving, professionals to leave my granddaughter with. I thank the entire staff for helping Hannah and for knowing she isn’t just another child. If all schools were like Peppermint, life would be a lot less stressful!"

- The Tiani Family

"My twin boys have been with Peppermint Stick for 3 years. We started at age 2. I was afraid that my kids would be treated like a number, but I was wrong. My children and I know and trust the staff. My children also have special needs and the school has been great with helping the boys in every way possible."

- The Jones Family

"We started Peppermint Stick 2 years ago. Peppermint Stick has been such a blessing to our family. All of the staff is incredible. These are teachers that truly care about your children. Our kids are always made to feel special and important. The teachers are always willing to work with you and address any problems your child may be going through. They have our highest recommendation."

- The DiGirolamo Family

"The teachers at Peppermint are wonderful. Peppermint is truly a family environment and when you walk in to drop your child off or pick them up, you immediately feel the love they have for each child."

- The Krueger Family

"I love Peppermint Stick! My daughter was encouraged to start school at 2 years old. I was so happy to find a school my daughter didn’t have to be potty trained. The teachers are the best around and that is hard to find. They taught my daughter potty training, ABC’s and 123’s by 3 years old. Now my daughter is on the computer! My daughter loves learning and comes home every night telling my husband and I all the new things she learned that day. It gives us peace of mind that she is getting the best care since we are both working parents. I would just like to say thank you Peppermint Stick!"

- The Hunter Family

"I never have to worry about my son when he is at Peppermint. I know he is safe and is with teachers that care about him. He has had a great start towards his education."

- The Gonsalez Family

"Choosing an early childhood education and care provider was not easy for me but once I found out about Peppermint my search was over. It is definitely a home away from home, which is full of warmth, love and great care. They have great teachers with the experience and great educational programs with all the resources. They have a well-rounded curriculum. At Peppermint learning is a lot of fun for all the kids. I can say it with confidence that no one else can care for my child the way they can. And above all they have flexible hours and the most reasonable fees. Can I expect anything more?"

- The Sheth Family
