Hi, I’m Lesley Gratton and I’m the Supervisor at Pippins.  I’ve been at Pippins since 2006 and really love working here.  We have a wonderful team and a fantastic mix of children – we really miss them when they move up to school but feel confident that we’ve helped them acquire the necessary skills to meet the challenges of full-time education.
