Two New Pipster Prep Locations
Pipster Prep Lake Oswego
Our Lake Oswego Location is conveniently located on State Street (near Whole Foods and Ace Hardware) and accommodates 80 students per day in 8 classrooms. This location opened May 1st 2023 and accepts students as young as 24 months old.
Pipster Prep Concordia (NE)
Our Concordia Location will accommodate 78 students per day in 8 classrooms. This location is anticipated to open September 2023. The Concordia location hopes to accept students as young as 12 months old. This location is just a few minutes from our other NE Pipster Prep Location on 3515 NE Killingsworth; however, due to high demand, we felt it necessary to increase our ability to serve the NE community.

Pipster Prep staff members follow both the student-centered and constructivist approach to learning.
A student-centered approach to learning is focused on each student's needs, abilities, interests, and learning styles. Our day is structured so teachers are able to spend time with students one-on-one and in small groups throughout the day and tailor instruction to each student's individual learning goals.
The constructivist approach to learning is the belief that students learn through actively engaging in lessons and activities. We believe that students should spend much of the day actively engaged in activities of their choosing.
Yes, all classrooms (except for the NE Mini Pipster Class) are certified to care for potty-trained children at least 3 years old. Students must be out of diapers and pull-ups by the time they start at Pipster Prep. We know however that accidents will happen and ask that students have at least one full change of clothing stored at Pipster Prep. Classrooms will be taking frequent whole class trips to the restroom. Throughout the day, students will be reminded and encouraged to use the restroom.
Yes, Pipster Prep serves breakfast and an afternoon snack everyday. Our breakfast consists of a selection of non-sugary cereal, fruit, and coconut/cows milk. Our afternoon snack varies, a menu of upcoming snacks is posted at our front desk.
We are committed to small class sizes and large amounts of individual instruction. Each class has ten to fourteen children per day.
