In a time when typically both parents need to work, it is difficult to imagine your child somewhere else than at home with you.  Hopscotch offers a family childcare setting for children as well as being able to keep siblings together.

Children benefit from the consistency of care since they may have the same childcare provider from infancy until they no longer require care.  As a consequence, parents develop a trusting relationship with the provider.  Children have the stability of one caregiver, other than their family, which provides healthy emotional growth for them.

In addition, your child will develop relationships with other children in the small, intimate setting that will assist their social development.

At Hopscotch, we ensure that your child is stimulated cognitively. We make certain that age-appropriate toys, crafts and stories are used in the caregivers’ home. We provide information to our providers on a regular basis to enrich the program and your child’s day care experience.

Many parents explore private home day care, a child care centre or a friend or relative when deciding who is best to look after their child.  Below is a list of benefits of choosing a licensed private home daycare with Hopscotch.
