Helping Hands was established in 1979 as a pre-school/child care center.
Since, it has grown into a family of schools known as Helping Hands/Peppermint Tree Schools with Traditional and Montessori Programs.
It is our mission to foster a good self image and prepare your child to face life with confidence.
Our warm, loving, learning environment enhances and develops childrens minds where freedom of choice and independence are encouraged.
Helping Hands/Peppermint Tree Schools provide an environment that promotes a positive growing experience.
All the classrooms are equipped with furniture and materials designed for each specific age group.
This provides the child with the ability to move freely and independently with little assistance from the adult This freedom of making choices allows the child to think and act independently.
