We also plan for your child’s development with a huge variety of exciting activities both indoors and outdoors, including trips and outings to engage, inspire, challenge and support your child’s development.

But it’s not all about your child. We want to look after you as well. That’s why our base standard is All-Inclusive - with nappies, wipes and all your child’s food taken care of you get to spend more time playing with your child and by using technology we ensure you stay connected with your child’s development.

Parents wanting the very best for their child find that Hopes & Dreams delivers.

Our Vision 

Happy Children, Positive Futures

Our Vision neatly describes why we exist and what we create.

How does our Vision benefit your child?

It applies to the children having fun, playing, being curious, building relationships, feeling emotionally secure, trying new things and enjoying their experiences today.


It also refers to their learning and the development.  Inspiring children to be inquisitive and engaged with the world in which they live.  Learning to be kind and considerate, exploring their abilities and their emotions. 

Acquiring the skills and experiences that will help them throughout their life.  Building the foundations for their own positive futures.
