Peppermint Tree Child Care Center 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.
