5-6 years

The world is an exciting place!

At Pippins, girls develop awareness of the the world around them. They learn important new things about themselves, other people and the environment. Each week, Pippins learn to share and work together as they take on new challenges from baking to kite making.

"We do fun things like campfires and scavenger hunts. And we learn about people who are different from us.
- Xanthe, 5 years"

The adventure starts here!

Nature discovery is a big part of Pippins, whether they are stargazing or cleaning up a local beach.

Pippins is loads of fun! But it’s also the place where 5 and 6 year-olds begin their development into confident, adventurous girls who are empowered to make a difference in their world!

What do Pippins do?

Here’s just a few of the things that girls do together at Pippins:

Make and fly a kite
Have a indoor sleepover
Learn new dance moves
Discover nature
Help clean up a local beach or playground
Visit places like the fire station or bakery
Look at the stars and find the Southern Cross
Listen to stories around a campfire
