My First Day
All Hopscotch crèches offer a versatile package of services to suit your child’s needs including Full-Time, Part-Time, Sessional and afterschool services.
First Time Children
At Hopscotch we understand the anxiety experienced by parents when bring your child to childcare for the first time. To help overcome this we promote a settling in period for your child. This settling in period will allow your child to become familiar with new surroundings.
Parents can be assured that each child will receive individual attention during this period and parents are free to contact the crèche during this settling time for reassurance and to receive a report on their child’s progress.
We are aware also that many parents are returning to work during this period and should be reassured to go about their day with the comfort that their child is happy and well cared for. If staff feel it is necessary they will ring parents immediately

• Change of clothes
• Nappies/Wipes (if applicable)
