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 pre-school. 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.
Toby now leads and oversees the day-to-day running of the pre-school, and places great importance on the safety, security and happiness of the children. Toby is keen to ensure that all children are ready for school with the friends they have made at Hoppers, and ensures a smooth transition for them.
The whole staff team are a dedicated, caring group of professionals, who thrive on providing a wide range of individually tailored activities to the children’s fascinations and interests.
