Tops Day Nurseries is a family of 19 day nurseries across the south, with nurseries in Boscombe, Bournemouth, Charminster, Corfe Mullen, Newport, Parkstone, Poole, Lymington, Portsmouth, Lakeside, Wareham, Winchester, Wimborne, Gillingham - Dorset, Salisbury, Christchurch, Havant and two nurseries in Taunton (Tops Mini Mariners and Tops Musgrove).
Tops Day Nurseries is the most sustainable childcare and educational group in the UK. In practice, this means you will see, for example, that children are actively engaged in reducing, re-using and recycling resources; in growing and caring for animals, and in learning to respect each other and the environment.
Behind the scenes, Tops are working on a whole host of actions too to ensure all buildings eco-ratings are improving; that waste is separated effectively so that food waste goes to farms if possible, and is incinerated for energy if not, that none of the waste goes to landfill. Tops area managers even have electric- only vehicles to avoid making the environment any worse for children from driving around.
The group provides children with a happy and secure environment where trained and qualified staff nurture their development through a range of activities, including messy play, cooking, problem-solving, storytelling, creative play and trips out. Extra-curricular activities are also offered.
These include Tops Forest School, tooth brushing, meditation, Tops Cooking School and Rugby Rangers.
The nurseries care for children aged between three months and five years, and offers 2, 3 and 4-year-old funding.
Staff at Tops Day Nurseries pride themselves on offering flexible hours tailored to parents’ and carers’ needs, where they can save money by booking to the nearest 15 minutes.
