About Us

Where our journey began...

Hi I’m Sarah

I live in Pakenham with my husband Simon & my 2 little ones - William who is now 6 years old  & Lucy who has just turned 5 (this photo was taken 3 years ago when we first opened Hopscotch)!

Being a mum to 2 small children & working is a juggling act, & at times life is chaotic. When I finally get a chance to met up with some girlfriends for a coffee in the past, we struggled to find a decent café that was child friendly.

I am not a fan of play centres for young children as the play equipment is often designed for older kids. And given the option, my little ones will choose imagination play over ball pits & slides – any day!

So, what started as a scrapbook of ideas over 18 months, my ideas & concepts are came to life & Hopscotch was born!

Hopscotch is a fun play space where fond childhood memories are made. We offer a unique & safe play environment with 7 themed play spaces, including a Construction Zone, Supermarket, Reading Nook and Laundry.

The café is open Wednesdays to Fridays for play sessions. On Saturdays and Sundays we offer exclusive private venue hire for birthday parties or functions in the play area.

It's so lovely to see our loyal customers on a regular basis and I love meeting Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Carers  -  especially welcoming the little Hopscotchers! We recommend booking to avoid disappointment as we only allow a certain number of people each play session.
