My family loves Peppertree! – We heard about Peppertree through friends and so glad we did. We were considering another preschool for our son but were encouraged to visit Peppertree. After visiting with Ms Jen and Ms Danna, we realized why our friends encouraged us so much. The center is clean and very inviting, but it was the atmosphere that really caught my attention. The children are so happy there, and well connected! I can proudly say that we have been, (and still are), a Peppertree family for almost 2 years!
Jovanina- A very satisfied mom!
A great place for kids! – My children are currently enrolled at Peppertree and they love it. The school is so cute and homey. Their staff is great, warm, friendly and nurturing. They do fun art projects and my children have learned so much in the last year they have been there. My daughter was in Ms. Katie's kindergarten class last year and is doing great this year in her new elementary school. Ms. Kaite was the most patient, caring, and friendly teacher.
Unorganized and lack of training – I would not recommend this school. My son went there from 4 months to two 1/2 years old. The infant care program was good but the school had many issues with turnover and lack of training in the two years my son was there. They have some good teachers that have been there for a while but the turnover overshadows the few good people there. The final straw was when my son and another boy walked out of the two front gates onto the busy road as a result of being out of teacher to child ratio and poor training. So thankful the childrean weren't struck by a car, kidnapped or worse! Would suggest carefully reconsidering before choosing this school. They provide a lot of empty promises and are always "trying" but just can't get it together or right. They also purposely note a 30-day notice policy for removing your child from the daycare and note an additional 30-days to return deposits so if you pull your child from the daycare, it can take up to 2 months to get the deposit returned.... not a typical policy with other daycares.
hard to get deposit back – They did not pay my deposit back in time. When I asked about the deposit, they lied a couple times. They said that the deposit was mailed but it was not. What made me angry most is they did not pick up my phone and did not respond on my message. It took two and half month to receive it finally when I was about to planning a legal claim.
We Heard of them through friends. Refferals are the best! – We live near several daycares. My friends recommended several. Most recommended PepperTree. I know why now. My mom watched my daughter from 3 months until she became ill. We went to the school and met Dana. What a caring person she is, she understood my situation and my concern as a newbie to day care. I was very stressed. After the tour and meeting the teachers i was at ease with leaving my daughter at peppertree. My wife and I can go to work and know our daughter is well taken care of. We are due in June and plan on sending our newborn there as well. My wife learned spanish and is teaching are daughter and the teachers there help my daughter learn two languages. There prices are reasonable and ask your friends they'll probably tell you about Peppertree.
Top Notch: Caring, Challenging, Creative – As a mother of 2 and 6 year olds, my children have participated in Peppertree's infant, preschool, pre-K, after-school care and summer camp programs over the last 4 years. I am very impressed with the TLC and academic challenge provided by Peppertree directors and staff. Also their summer program was totally amazing; packed with non-stop fun and impressively creative activities and field-trips. Furthermore, they have shown great flexibility in accommodating our evolving family schedule, particularly with their elementary school pickup service.
I could not recommend any school more highly.
