About Hopscotch Early Years Consultancy
Founded by our MD Laura in 2011, we have grown over the last seven years to become the largest Early Years consultancy in the UK.
At Hopscotch we know you’re unique – so we work to your specific needs and requirements.
We are a tight-knit team of sixteen consultants, based across the UK but who share the same vision and passion to help nurseries and practitioners to be the best that they can be and ready to face an ever-changing industry and meet the challenges that it brings.
Our team are all either current Early Years inspectors or qualified Early Years teachers.
As a result we not only understand the most current structures and guidelines in place in the Early Years sector, but see both the very best examples of best practice and the most difficult issues facing providers on a daily basis. We can see your setting through the eyes of the regulator whilst at the same time working with one goal in mind – to be by your side to drive quality and excellence in your provision.
It has never been a harder time to survive in the childcare industry.
At Hopscotch we understand the financial constraints that are putting the sector under pressure. We work to ensure early years providers are sustainable whilst also creating a rich and stimulating environment for children. Our team have extensive management and executive experience and can ensure that your business runs as efficiently as possible without sacrificing quality.
No matter what you and your settings need, Hopscotch can help. Our consultants have inspected thousands of Early Years provisions and Hopscotch have helped hundreds of settings to achieve their goals. As inspectors, we’ve seen the very best and worst of the sector – so we know exceptional practice when we see it. And as consultants, we’ve worked on every kind of project – from settings in danger of closure by the authorities, to settings who wish to offer something that has never been done before in Early Years, to settings that are just a twinkle in the eye of a person with a vision and a dream!
Of course, our core services are around pre- and post-Ofsted support. We know that these periods can be the busiest, most stressful but ultimately the most rewarding of our time as operators and practitioners. We know that you need us to be quick to respond to your immediate needs, flexible enough to adapt when we see opportunities and challenges in your provision, and dedicated to your success in the same way that you and your staff teams are.
Our reputation in the sector comes from the excellence of our consultants and the bonds we build with our customers. We walk the road arm-in-arm with you and share your goals and dreams and we are always available to help when a challenge rears its head.
