We are proud to announce that for the second time this year, The Asbury Park Press has visited The Peppermint Tree to learn about an important Early Childhood Education topic, and to create an educational video.  We are also featured in an article on the subject of Developmental Milestones.

Here is the link to the video and article featuring The Peppermint Tree:

Our Director, Valerie Frost-Lewis, MS Ed. is interviewed about Developmental Milestones in Preschool Children and the wonderful children and staff of The Peppermint Tree are there to illustrate the high points!  Enjoy!

Please remember that as per the State of New Jersey requirements, all children who attend Peppermint Tree who are under 5 years of age, must get an annual Flu shot, before December 31.

The Ocean County Health Department will now provide children with flu shots at all of the clinics they run for immunizations (not only for adults). The first flu shot clinic is scheduled for Wednesday, October 13, 1:30 -3:30 p.m. at the Ocean County Library, Toms River Branch, as a part of Ocean County Day. (Cost: $20.00)
