Though the youngest, (having opened in July of 2011) and smallest of the three Hop Skip and Jump Centres; the Swindon Centre prides itself on "being a small place that accomplishes big things". It provides flexible, immediate respite day care and support for families and carers of those with complex needs within the Wiltshire area. We strive to provide an opportunity for anyone and their families to access a safe, supportive and happy place where everyone can enjoy a variety of things to do and make new friendships, regardless of any additional needs they may have.
We offer a range of clubs, activities and respite opportunities for children as well as young adults and their support network. We run Hop Skip and Jump Swindon Day time and Evening, and are also open on Saturdays.
With a team of qualified and dedicated Play Workers, our Head of Care and our Centre Supervisor, we work with a number of external organisations and the local authority to support as many families as we can.
Monday mornings 9-12 we run an under 5's group. All families with under 5's are welcome. £5 for children and £2 per adult.
A great way to get together and meet other families whilst your children can play in a safe and secure environment.
