Enjoy an evening out without worrying about child care. Pipster Prep creates an entertaining night for children ages 3 to 8 years old. Pajama parties run from 6:00 PM - 9:15 PM. Dinner is included.
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.
Once a month, our Friday Night Pajama Party (6:00 to 9:30 pm) is open to potty trained children 3 to 8 years old. Dinner is included and served at 6:30pm. Availability is limited and is open first to parents of enrolled students.
We are so excited to welcome two year olds at our Pipster Prep Northeast location. Our goal is to provide a rich environment of exploration and discovery for our littlest Pipsters.
