Welcome to Hippitots Children’s World

Welcome to Hippitots Children’s World judged ‘OUTSTANDING’ by Ofsted in June 2014

Where are we:

Hippitots Children’s World opened in February 2003 as a private nursery, out of school and holiday club in the Tarka Centre, Coxhoe, County Durham.

At Hippitots we believe that ‘every child is a star’ therefore we aim to provide the opportunities for each child to fulfil their potential by developing self-confidence, so that they are happy with themselves and with each other, and by giving them care, love and a world of new experiences.

We strive to balance established educational principles and acknowledged values with current trends in nursery care and educational thinking. We plan all activities with children’s interests at heart linking to EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) working in partnership with parents and carers.

Ofsted says:

“Staff are extremely enthusiastic and know children exceptionally well. The leadership of the nursery is based on the pursuit of excellence.” Ofsted, June 2014

“Teaching is outstanding because staff have an excellent understanding of how children learn through play and exploration.” Ofsted, June 2014
