Drop-In Service

Hopes and Dreams provides a tailor-made drop-in service for families. This service is available throughout the year and on a first come, first served basis.

For non-attending children, you may use our Drop-In service to introduce your child to the Nursery School environment.

This supports to prepare your child(ren) for an easier introduction in the Nursery School life and encourages:

  • Social and interactive bonding with peers.
  • Speech and language development.
  • Confidence and independence.
  • Reading, writing, mathematical and physical skills development at an early stage.

The Drop-In Service is also available for all attending families, providing temporary add-on schedules to cover additional childcare requirements.

All our children are assigned with a Key Person who will assist you and your child to settle comfortably into the classroom, providing consistent support for you and your child(ren).

A two-week free settling in period is recommended before you start using our Drop-In service.

To join our drop-in service you are required to register with us.

Please do not hesitate to contact the office with any queries regarding our Drop-In Service, fees or to book a visit to our Nursery School.
