‘A day in the life’ at Hopscotch

Children learn, laugh and play everyday at Hopscotch and that is in the heart of everything we do. Located in a detached former home in a quiet residential street in central Hove, our nursery is warm, comfortable and inviting and the perfect home from home environment.

Soft Play, Every Day

We have just completed the installation of our new soft play centre in the nursery, which gives our children the opportunity to undertake fun physical play all year round, regardless of the weather. Children love to be active by climbing the padded steps, whizzing down the slide or spinning around on the dizzy disc!

My son has attended Hopscotch West Hove since he was 1 and he’s now over 3. I can’t recommend this nursery highly enough. They have been supportive and nurturing with Theo and proactive and creative with the educational programme.

As a result he has developed so much through his attendance at nursery. It’s a close-knit team at Hopscotch and they’re a pleasure to turn up and chat to each day. It also makes my job so much easier knowing I’m handing my son over to a team who will look after him and genuinely care about him.

I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for looking not just after 1 but 2 of my kids! They both loved going in each time and always happy and smiling when picked up. The guys there are all lovely and always welcoming.

Even during the pandemic they kept us parents informed about everything whether it’s big or small. Thank you for all your support and really looking after our kids, sadly they’re grown now and you guys have given them the basics to start school.

To any parents looking to send their kids to Hopscotch, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks again to you all.

Hopscotch is simply the best. My son went to nursery here from the age of 18 months to 4, before starting infant school. He had a wonderful time in these years and the staff are so kind and warm-hearted. I couldn’t recommend highly enough! Thank you Hopscotch.
