Suzy Coutermarsh

Suzy Coutermarsh started her early childcare career right in her own home. Little Peanuts began as a home-based childcare provider in 1998. In 2001, it became a licensed center. We are now a Five-star, NAEYC Accredited program with locations in Springfield, Ascutney and Brookline Vermont, the highest achievement a childcare program can receive. Little Peanuts is also a preschool partner with all local Vermont school districts.
