  • Pippa Pop-ins is part of the Dukes Education family of schools and educators, brought together by a common purpose: to give children the foundations for an extraordinary life, through education.


    Dukes Education is a family of schools, teachers, learners, and parents connected by our pursuit of an extraordinary life for every member of our community.


    Our philosophy is to support each individual to live with purpose, to encourage a love of learning, and to act as a team. All of this is underpinned by a quality standard that runs through everything we do.


    We believe that education is a journey to be enjoyed and shared at every stage of life, unlocking extraordinary possibilities for every student.

    Miss Rachel is the Principal of Pippa Pop-ins and oversees the education, management and recruitment of the Schools. She has a wealth of knowledge, Early Years qualifications and experience. Miss Rachel has taught both in the United Kingdom and overseas in Tokyo, Paris, Brussels and America.  Miss Rachel has been at Pippa Pop-ins for 24 years.


    Every School has a Head of Nursery and Deputy Head who you will meet on a daily basis. 


    If you call the Schools Office you can speak to Miss Maxine, Miss Amy, or Miss Julia. If you have any accounts queries, please speak to Miss Baiba.  

    Teaching Staff

    At Pippa Pop-ins, our Teachers are highly qualified and experienced.  The qualifications vary and are as follows: Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS), Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), Bachelor of Education, Montessori Diploma, NNEB, Early Years Educator, NVQ Level 3, Level 3 and 5 in Management of Early Years or an Overseas Diploma (equivalent or higher).  

    All our staff have been very closely vetted by Pippa Pop-ins and references taken for the security and the welfare of your child.  All have had Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks and they all complete a 12 hour Paediatric First Aid Course whilst at Pippa Pop-ins.  

    Pippa Pop-ins encourages their staff to continue with their Professional Development and sponsors training courses.

    Continuity of Care

    Pippa Pop-ins does not run a shift worker system.  All our staff are employed on either a full-time or part-time basis so your child will have the continuity of the same teacher throughout the week, unless they do a mixture of sessions.  If a teacher is unwell or unable to come to work, a member of our own team (cover teacher) will take their place.
