Peppermint Stick Preschool & Learning Center

  • Peppermint Stick continues to provide high quality education and care for young children.
  • For more than 35 years, we have been helping children learn and grow in a nurturing and safe environment that makes learning fun.
  • Our philosophy is to provide developmental care with frequent and fond attention from staff; a safe and interesting physical environment; the opportunity to socialize with other children and a program of enriching educational experiences.
  • We intend to offer a preschool program that blends prescribed educational activities with opportunities for free choice, that has some structure, but allows children to explore a varied environment.
  • It is our aim to maximize the intellectual, physical, social and emotional development of each child.
  • Each child will be considered as an individual first, then as a group member.
  • Whenever possible, we intend to provide individualized care in a group setting.
