Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

My 4 year old Daughter attends Hopscotch and joined here when her previous nursery closed down. I didn’t think any other nursery could compete with her previous one but Hopscotch has exceeded all my expectations. DD loves going to preschool and this morning when I dropped her off she ran to the door telling me how much she loves Gemmy (her Keyworker). What I like best is the fact the staff genuinely love the children and want to nurture them to get the best from them. There is very low staff turnover which was really important for me, a detailed handover given at the end of each day and a learning journal maintained during their time at the nursery. My daughter eats a wide range of foods and the staff encourage her to try new things. DD hates tomatoes but is so excited that they are growing them in the garden. The new garden is lovely and my child spends most of her time out there. My most memorable moment will be when DD ‘graduated’ in her gown and mortarboard! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery – it’s a home away from home for your children. That is more important to me than price any day!

Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

My daughter is just about to leave and start school and I feel that Hopscotch has been a brilliant part of her life. The staff are amazing and really care, coming up with endless games and activities to keep the children amused. My daughter is forever teaching me how to play 'going on a bear hunt' or other such games. She is very happy, contented little girl and has such confidence. She will be sad to leave, especially now they have just finished the new garden.

Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

I highly recommend Hopscotch nursery. My daughter currently attends the under 2's there and is 'arms out' to the staff in the morning as she loves it so much. I was nervous about the transition to nursery in the beginning, but I instantly liked and felt confident in Hopscotch and was completely reassured through the settling-in process. The staff have really taken the time to get to know my daughter and she has developed wonderfully during her time there. They have really encouraged her in the things she is good at and have helped her develop in the things that she needs more help with e.g my daughter was a bottom-shuffler so walked later and was not used to rolling/crawling so they ensured she had activities which helped her with this. I am always amazed at the interesting meals on offer at Hopscotch too - my daughter loves the food (I am told she often asks for seconds) and she self-feeds with a spoon beautifully. I wouldn't want my daughter at any other nursery.

Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

My 4 year old son has been slow to play with other children. The staff have been incredibly supportive, getting to the bottom of why this was the case and developing ways of playing and learning that both encouraged him to mix and supported him in his needs and preferences. I believe the staff went way above our expectations to ensure he was developing well and felt happy and confident.

Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

My two daughters attend Hopscotch and are currently in Pre-school and Under-twos. They started at 10 months and 6 months respectively. They both love their 3 days each week at Nursery. As soon as I viewed Hopscotch I knew it was the right nursery for my children. The semi-rural setting and size of nursery is just right. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming and there is now a very low staff turnover. The food is excellent - freshly cooked on the premises each day and the menu is changed regularly. My daughters eat a range of foods and are always willing to try new things. The children do various activities each day. The older children use the garden usually daily and the younger ones are always encouraged to explore new activities and go outside when the weather permits. Sensory, role play, mark making and general play is a huge part of the day. Disciplines such as toilet training, tooth brushing and table manners are instilled from a young age. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hopscotch.

Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

My daughter is lucky enough to attend Hopscotch in Titchfield. The team really are excellent - they care for the individual child and take a real interest in their growth and development. Lots of different activities are offered to the children and a detailed hand over is given at the end of each day. Each child has a key worker, but every member of staff in the room are aware of each child's needs and interests. The food is prepared on site and very tasty - samples are given at the Parents Evenings for us to try also. Detailed Learning Journeys are kept for each child and shared regularly with parents. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this nursery - the child always comes first here and from the first time we visited Hopscotch I have felt secure in the knowledge that my little girl would be well cared for.

Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

Hopscotch at Titchfield in Hampshire provided a pre-school place for my daughter at very short notice when her previous nursery closed down. They welcomed my child and made her feel included from day one making her sudden transition a smooth and stress free experience. They have an excellent team of staff who are led by a caring and supportive management team. I would not hesitate to recommend them to other parents or guardians.

Review of Hopscotch Day Nursery

Hopscotch is a lovely nursery. Our daughter loves all the staff and has learned so much in her time there. She started at nine months and each child is treated as an individual and all the staff in her room know exactly what she has done each day and genuinely seem to enjoy their work. I could not imagine a better place to trust my precious little girl too. Everyone in the nursery are brilliant but Lily has taken a particular liking to her room leader Anna who is friendly and bubbly and loves all the kids. The food is nutritious and tasty. We are given tasters at the open evenings and this has helped Lily not to be a fussy eater.
