We believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged. At Pippins Preschool children are given opportunities to make sense of and develop an understanding of the world around them through hands on activities. At this enthusiastic, energetic and absorbent age we feel it is vital that children are provided with a nurturing early years environment where they can make their own choices, move freely, try new experiences and gain independence. We aim to provide a setting enriched with endless opportunities for social interaction, to be creative, sing, dance, enjoy nature and most importantly, just be children.
All play at Pippins is conducted in a safe environment under the guidance of qualified and experienced practitioners and a lovely team of assistants who are sympathetic to the care and educational needs of the children. We offer small group and individual attention and a Key Person works with each child on his / her individual development.
At Pippins we have a lovely large outside area where the children can ride bikes and scooters, play games, help in the vegetable patch and flower garden, dig, feed the birds, build dens, climb, create in the mud kitchen and hunt for bugs. Being outside is extremely important for a child’s health, development, learning and well-being so we do offer outdoor play whatever the weather.
Spaces at Pippins Preschool are limited to 18 children per session. Our small environment enables us to meet the individual needs of all the children and to properly assist them in achieving their full potential.
"There are inspirational relationships between staff and children. Children are extremely
happy and confident, and enjoy the company of staff and each other. This helps
children to have a positively high level of self confidence and self esteem." - Ofsted (2017)
