"Where to begin, I’m truly forever grateful for all the staff members at Little Pippins Preschool they have given my 2 boys the best start in life possible, always going out their way to support and guide.
I love the fact of how much passion and determination they have on getting all the support possible and identifying children that have additional needs and getting through all the correct channels to get the help and advice.
Personally without little Pippins I’m certain that my child wouldn’t of got his EHCP, or his diagnosis. Keep all the amazing work up!
Couldnt recommend this nursery high enough! Truly deserve all the recognition!
Thank you for everything" C.Murphy 2022
