Hopscotch Day Nursery Eastleigh
Hello, my name is Lorraine Dalipe and I am the Manager of Hopscotch Day Nursery Eastleigh. I recently joined Hopscotch after they acquired The Trees Day Care Nursery in November 2020.
With over 20 years of childcare experience I have worked my way up in a nursery environment gaining experience in every aspect of childcare from my NNEB qualification to becoming a Nursery Manager in 2011. I also have an NVQ Level 3 qualification in Management.
At Hopscotch Day Nursery Eastleigh, the team and I are passionate about children and committed to helping each child to grow and develop to their full potential. We spend a lot of time building relationships with children and their families, and creating a safe and stimulating environment where children can learn and have fun. We hope that your child's early years at Hopscotch will be a special experience giving them the best possible start in their early years journey.
Hopscotch Eastleigh is in a large Victorian property, formerly a social club, architecturally designed with the needs of each age group in mind. The nursery has a private car park for easy drop-offs and collections, and due to the enviable location of the nursery - opposite the park, and close to Eastleigh Town Centre - we regularly organise trips to expand our children's experience within the local area. Inside the building we have been busy renovating and refurbishing this fantastic nursery, (as you can see in the image gallery), and we are currently in the process of increasing our outdoor areas to ensure each age group has its own safe, secure play area directly accessible from their home rooms. This will ensure that all of our children can choose to play and learn inside or out, fostering independence and ensuring they have every opportunity to enjoy a variety of environments - we don’t just play outside on sunny days!
We are proud of our nursery, and I look forward to showing you around and introducing you to our amazing team.
