October 23rd, 2014 by Valerie Frost-Lewis

At the Peppermint Tree, we enjoy providing fun and enriching experiences not only for the children in our classrooms, but also for the whole family to enjoy and benefit from.  We are a Strengthening Families Center, which means we provide beneficial services and events for the whole family throughout the year.  We are a part of the national initiative “Strengthening Families Through Early Care and Education”, utilizing the research based Protective Factors to help families meet the needs of their growing children.
