Pippies, a proudly privately owned Centre., has grown into a very well known and loved centre which we believe is not only because of the environment that we are surrounded by, but the warm and loving feel that all Pippies staff provide. With fantastic staff, a wonderful environment and excellent educational based program, you and your child will love being a part of the Pippies family. We pride ourselves on our reputation and have worked very hard at ensuring that each child and family that attends Pippies not only enjoys but excels in the nurturing environment that we provide.

Parents have the opportunity to be involved in Pippies in lots of different ways. These may include attending one of our parent information meetings, assisting with fundraising, or making suggestions to be included in our daily program. We also encourage parents to share their skills with the children by organising a time with the staff, to come in and do a cooking activity, teach the children a new song, or read a story – whatever you feel comfortable doing.
If your child is having their first day at Pippies, we believe that it is in the child’s best interest that they be picked up after lunch, as the first day can be overwhelming for a child.
