Fareham MP Suella Braverman has congratulated the leadership and staff of Hopscotch day nurseries over the opening of their newest facility.
The locally based company, who have been running nursery services for over 13 years, opened their newest nursery in Fareham earlier this year. The opening of the Fareham nursery brings the total number of nurseries operated by Hopscotch to five – with the other four being situated locally from Botley to Gosport.
Mrs Braverman, who leads a number of initiatives to assist local businesses, was given a tour of the new nursery before congratulating the Hopscotch team over their recent success and expansion. She was also joined by the leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Sean Woodward, and Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage whose constituency is also home to a Hopscotch nursery.
Among the new facilities on show was a fully equipped interactive sensory room, soft play areas and brand new outdoor recreational facilities. Mrs Braverman is expecting her first baby later this year and was also shown around the nurseries on-site office workspaces, designed for parents to help them strike a more flexible balance between work and child-care.
Commenting, Suella Braverman said:
“I want to congratulate the Hopscotch team for successfully opening their new site in Fareham and expanding their operations. The new facilities, such as the indoor play areas and on-site office spaces, are fantastic and this is another example of a local business going from strength to strength.
“It also illustrates that if we have a strong business environment where businesses are given the necessary support and suitable conditions to grow, we can expect to see more success stories such as Hopscotch. All of this leads to a more prosperous economy and more jobs for local people in Fareham.”
