Kids in Preschool
A Tradition Of Excellence 

At Hop, Skip and Jump Pre-Schools every parent and child is important to us and it is our aim to make each one feel special.

All our pre-schools are run to make your child feel welcomed and completely at home.

Serving Croydon and the South London area, it is our desire to be your nursery of choice and look forward to welcoming your child into the Hop, Skip and Jump family.

All Hop, Skip and Jump locations are run as christian pre-schools but welcome children and families of all religions, beliefs and nationalities.

About Us

Hop, Skip and Jump Preschool was started in 1992 by Lizzie Wallace, a fully qualified Nursery Nurse whose passion was to provide a safe place where children could develop, learn and have fun.

That first pre-school began in a house in South Croydon with just two children.

By January 1994 the fledgling pre-school had moved into it's first premises at East Croydon United Reform Church and still has a pre-school there today.

Hop, Skip and Jump has previously run three pre-schools in the Croydon borough with the capacity to service around 90 families when full. We are now focussed on our one location at East Croydon United Reform Church near East Croydon Station.

Our Location

The Hop, Skip and Jump preschool nearest to East Croydon rail and tram services, is held in United Reform Church in Addiscombe Grove, CR0 5LP.


Daniel and Charis have throughly enjoyed their time at Hop, Skip & Jump. I have seen tremendous progress from the time they started....especially in the areas of social interaction with other children and their literacy skills.
