Our daughter loves it here. Great nursery staff that really care.

The organisation as a whole seems really well run with a great ethos that permeates through all the staff who are always upbeat, positive and great with the children.

Our daughter initially started at another nearby nursery at age 1 and something was not 'feeling right', we're so glad we listened to our gut and moved to Hopscotch, it was worth the minor upheaval and left us all a lot happier!

Special mention to the fantastic Amy with whom our daughter made a special bond - it was sad day when it was time to move up to the next age-group, although that was made painless by the great staff there too.

We have friends with kids in some of the other Hopscotch locations and they sing their praises too.

I would give 6 starts if I could!

Before choosing the Hopscotch nursery I have had a look at around 5 other nurseries in Brighton and the Hopscotch appeared to be the best! I was impressed how clean it is, how everything is well organised. The staff is extremely caring, kind, supportive and attentive to details.

Every holiday parents are receiving something hand made by their kids and this creates unforgettable memories for the rest of our lives. Any favour from parents will be accepted with enthusiasm and support from careers.

I'm confident that my little one is happy, safe and developing properly together with her lovely friends. I will recommend the Hopscotch Nurseries to every parent looking for the best place for their little babies.

Bavant Road Hopscotch has truly changed our lives.

My daughter has been going to the nursery for nearly 6 months and since starting her speech has developed, her play skills have expanded beyond belief and she is becoming very independent. The nursery has been incredible for her overall development.

The nursery itself is well equipped, the staff are lovely and incredibly competent and the whole building is very organised and feels safe (there is even a soft-play area!).

Highly recommend for all children!
