Welcome to Little Pips!

In our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit, we pride ourselves on providing high quality early education for our local community and surrounding areas.

Our enthusiastic, highly qualified and experienced staff have been police checked in accordance with the Children’s Act and Ofsted regulations. They work very hard to ensure each individual child’s needs are met. Planning extends and develops the children’s learning through close observations and finding out what interests and motivates the children.

We are very much part of the school, taking part in many of the school activities. We have access to all parts of the school and its facilities, including extensive playing fields, outdoor play equipment, trim trial, pond and wildlife are and the school hall.
