About Hop, Skip and Jump Preschools

Hop, Skip and Jump Preschool was started in 1992 by Lizzie Wallace,a fully qualified Nursery Nurse whose passion was to provide a safe place where children could develop, learn and have fun.

That first pre-school began in a house in South Croydon with just two children.

By January 1994 the fledgling pre-school had moved into it's first premises at East Croydon United Reform Church and still has a pre-school there today.

Hop, Skip and Jump now has three pre-schools in the Croydon borough with the capacity to service around 90 families when full. Details of all three Hop, Skip and Jump pre-schools can be found by following the ´Locations´ button from the navigation menu.

The Vision

It is the aim at Hop, Skip and Jump to provide excellent facilities for your children, an environment where they feel safe and secure and are given the opportunity to play and learn in all the areas of development.

As a Christian Pre-School we also place value on learning about God and Jesus, for the children to know that He can be their friend and that they can also learn friendship, forgiveness and grace to one another.

Hop, Skip and Jump is a pre-school that is accessible to all regardless of race, religion or developmental needs. We want to serve as many families in the community as possible through a continuing commitment to providing the best pre-school care in Croydon through existing and new pre-schools throughout the borough.
