Why do parents and children love Pippins Preschool?

The video below was made by Pippins’ families as a show of appreciation for the outstanding preschool staff, and highlights some of the things our families love most about sending their children to Pippins.

At Pippins, families are at the heart of everything we do. Instead of hearing it from us, please read on to hear from other local families in their own words. If you’re a current or former parent/carer, we’d love to hear from you! Please share some thoughts on your child’s experience with Pippins, to help give future families a feel for what our preschool is like. Testimonials can be submitted here.

‘All three of my sons have been part of the Pippins family. All three bloomed during their time there. All the extra visitors they have in throughout the year have helped to make lasting memories. My son still remembers the visit from the animals, especially the snake! That was about ten years ago and he still talks about it yet. He remembers all the teachers and some of the activities that he obviously enjoyed. My youngest son is part of the Pippins Preschool family now and he raves about the ladies. He always has a story to tell. I would highly recommend Pippins to anyone with a preschool-aged child. All the ladies are very friendly and approachable.’
‘The Pippins staff are outstanding – I cannot speak highly enough of them. From before my son even started attending Pippins, I felt like all of the staff were so interested in getting to know him as an individual, and working with me to make sure he felt confident and happy from his first day. Now, I can’t get him to leave at the end of the day!’
‘When we first started looking for a preschool or nursery setting for our child I honestly didn’t think we’d find somewhere that would be so understanding and accommodating to his extra needs. But then we walked into Pippins and every single person was so warm and welcoming. You didn’t make us feel different and you included our son as much as he would let you. We can never thank you enough; going at his pace has massively contributed to the progress he’s made. Pippins has changed my son in so many ways. He’s more confident, more physically able and much more social and vocal now. We don’t know how to thank you for all the hard work you’ve put in with him, for how kind you’ve all been and how encouraging you’ve been to him. We are all so grateful to all of you at Pippins and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.’
‘Thank you so much for all your support this year, we can never repay you for all that you have done for our child and the progress that he has made whilst at Pippins. You gave our child a chance: he has never been so happy and is now ready to take the next big step, and we will forever be grateful to you.’
‘Pippins is such a lovely, welcoming and supportive preschool. All of the staff are smiley and approachable and take the time to get to know your children. They have a wonderful large outdoor space in their back garden as well as running special sessions such as Forest School and Musical Bumps.’
‘Wonderful preschool, both of my daughters have attended and not only have they enjoyed it, but it’s helped massively with their development, which has in turn made a real difference to our home lives. Can’t thank them enough for the work they have done, and I highly recommend them to any parents or workers in the area looking for childcare.’
‘Our son has thrived at Pippins. The staff are attentive to his interests and play style, allowing them to provide personalised stimulation and opportunities for development. The forest school is a firm favourite along with the added music sessions!’
‘Pippins is a very well-run preschool with all staff totally committed to the welfare, development and enjoyment of all the children in their care. Our little one has thoroughly enjoyed her time there so far and continues to develop well in all areas thanks to the dedication of all of the team.’
‘My son doesn’t want to leave! Pippins is a great pre-school with amazing staff who really go above and beyond to provide the best experience for the children in their care. My daughter’s favourite memory is learning to tie knots with her teacher. My son loves playing outside in their lovely gardens and at forest school.’
‘Our daughter attends Pippins and absolutely loves it. She has developed so much confidence since she started and she can’t wait to go in each day. The additional activities offered, such as forest school and musical bumps, are amazing. We couldn’t be happier.’
‘Pippins is an amazing nursery. My daughter has been there for over a year now and enjoyed every moment from the beginning. Staff always have a smile on their faces and are very happy to answer any questions parents might have. The outside area at Pippins is a very nice size with plenty of play equipment. Pippins offers a forest school that allows the children to experience nature in the wild area. We would highly recommend this nursery.’
