Our Little Story

A True Family Pre-School

Hoppers was started 30 years ago by Jill Evans, as she couldn’t find suitable childcare for her own son Toby who had just turned 2. Jill was hoping to return to work as a teacher but instead decided to start her own preschool. She operated out of the family home for the first 8 years, before expanding to the current location 22 years ago.
Following the completion of his degree at Durham in Modern Languages & Cultures, Toby completed a graduate conversion course to achieve an Early Years Teacher Qualification to enable him to lead and oversee the day-to-day running of the preschool. However, just recently Toby has found a new love for a different career path in finance and so has let go of his family business to pursue his new interests. 

Since July 2020 Hoppers has been under new Management by a family who have run children's day nurseries in Dorset for 25 years. The Scadden family have over 90 years' experience in the childcare sector between them and continue to grow by taking on new opportunities. David, Joy, Aimée and Luc continue to provide exceptional childcare at Hoppers with the original friendly, professional team, keeping that family feel. In a safe, happy and stimulating environment the children learn so much from attending Hoppers, just in time for school!
