Welcome to Pippin Pre-School
I have been a part of the Pippin family since 2001, starting as a committee member, then progressing my career within Pippin, gaining many qualifications in childcare. I was proud to become the Pre-School Manager in May 2016. I have high expectations of myself and the staff team, who bring with them a breadth and depth of professional knowledge and encourage a learning culture with a strong ethos of inclusion.
Our setting offers a warm and engaging environment for children to develop and learn through play. We have a full and varied curriculum that provides a solid foundation upon which children can achieve their full potential.
Lift off to Language
Our Lift Off To Language Co-Ordinator is accredited to deliver this programme. This promotes speech and language through small group activities, introducing them to a wide range of vocabulary and promoting their self-confidence to interact with their peers.
Our daily activities promote Physical and Nutritional development. We offer a healthy snack of seasonal fruit and vegetables twice a day, and children are encouraged to participate in activities that keep them active with regular music and movement sessions.
“Pippin have had all 5 of our children across the last 21 years. We have always been thrilled with them, the children have all loved it and staff go above and beyond. We credit Sharon with getting our autistic son talking. Would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat.”
“My children have thoroughly enjoyed the build up to Christmas at Pippin. Right from the Christmas crafts, concert, grotto, party, and even the video and music you had outside at pick up time today, you've really gone the extra mile! Thanks ever so much and have a great Christmas and break.”
“Saying goodbye to Pippin today has been so hard. We just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone at Pippin for making our daughter's time so special. She has loved Pippin. It is an amazing place for this community and any child would be lucky to spend time there. We will miss you all.”
“I can't praise Pippin enough! My little girl absolutely loves going, she talks to myself and her daddy about the activities she's been up to during her busy day and comes out singing her heart out and with a bucket load of crafts. I can't recommend Pippin and their amazing, hardworking staff enough.”
“Today my family say goodbye to Pippin, we cannot thank the staff enough. Over the last four years our three children have grown up at Pippin. The help and support you provided us when my husband had his brain injury was more than I could have asked for. We love Pippin very much. We are sad to be leaving today.”
