Hop Skip and Jump provide immediate and flexible respite care for children and young adults with disabilities and SEN.
We are able to cater for up to 60 children a day, providing a variety of groups and activities for them to engage with, indoor and outdoor play facilities, all with an emphasis on self-development and discovery.
Our Centres are equipped with sensory rooms, soft play facilities and art rooms in order to provide a safe and secure space that enriches the lives of disabled children whilst their parents receive a much needed break.
We believe not only in helping parents through the difficulties of supporting a disabled child, but also in ensuring that there is a sense of development for their children.
Our Centres provide both a play-orientated and creative outlet for children, but also offer a comprehensive support service for their parents. Sometimes a break can be everything – to know that your child is being looked after in a safe, secure environment with plenty of support, encouragement and opportunity makes all the difference. At Hop Skip and Jump, we strive to make that difference.
Our approach is very much a holistic one
