Helping Hands and Peppermint Tree Schools, Edison


Share post:

Helping Hands and Peppermint Tree Schools have been integral part of the community since the first school opened in Edison in 1971. They offer a variety of programs including a Montessori program that emphasizes the philosophy of educating the “whole child.” They feel that children have a natural desire to learn and the goals of an early childhood education should cultivate this desire in the classroom setting. In order to become independent, successful learners, the child should be able to be the focal point, not the teacher. As parents, choosing a child care center can be an extremely difficult and an often confusing process. They feel it is crucially important for parents and providers to have a very open and friendly relationship and work together to provide children with the best possible experience. They offer full-time, part-time, before care and after care, with flexible scheduling to accommodate parents. Now transportation is provided. Ask about the discounted rate. The schools offer enrichment programs such as music, art, movement and a “small chef” cooking experience. The rates are highly competitive and they offer many specials that are unbeatable. Helping Hands Nursery School is located at 1059 Amboy Ave., Edison; call 732-225-4432. Peppermint Tree Child Care Center at Raritan Center is located at 165 Fieldcrest Ave., Edison; call 732-225-7400. Visit
