Pippins is a governor run pre-school, situated on the grounds of Hope Brook School. Pippins welcomes children from all areas regardless of their choice of school. Pippins aims to provide a fun, exciting, safe and secure environment in which children learn through a combination of free play and adult supported activities. Children are encouraged to be independent and are always encouraged to have ‘a go’ first, then the adult will help them if they need it. We have close links with the Reception teacher in school, and spend 2 afternoons a week doing activities with them, which helps to ensure a smooth transition into school.
Children who attend Pippins are also welcome to attend our Breakfast and After School Club which runs from 8-8.45am and 3.00-6.00pm.
Pippins takes children from 2 – 4 year olds.
Pippins sessions run from 9am-3pm 5 days a week.
The day is broken down into morning and afternoon sessions.
We accept 2 yr old funding, Nursery Funding for 3 & 4yr olds and also 30 hours extended funding.
