Salisbury District Hospital, Salisbury SP2 8BJ
Tops Salisbury (formerly Toy Box Day Nursery) joined the Tops Day Nurseries family in April 2017.
The nursery environment provides an excellent opportunity for children to learn, play and communicate with other children and adults.
Parents with their children placed in Tops will experience exactly what makes Tops Day Nurseries different, and will be offered flexible booking where they can book to the nearest 15 minutes.
This nursery is part of a group that provides the most eco-sustainable childcare and education in the UK, being respectful of the environment and acting to reduce, re-use and recycle resources is an important part of the culture and routine for the children and staff.
Tops Day Nurseries offers a number of extra-curricular activities for the children including: Tops Cooking School, Tops Forest School, meditation, yoga, Rugby Rangers, Boogie Mites, tooth brushing and much more. These activities are benefits they hope to introduce to the children at Tops Salisbury.
During a child’s day at nursery, staff will record important information to share with families, such as sleep times/nappy changes and information about milk/food intake. This information is added to a daily report which is submitted onto EYLOG.
Tops Day Nurseries has introduced a no-added sugar menu to all nurseries, ensuring children start their time at nursery with a nutritional, healthy diet.
Parents and carers are welcome to call the nursery to talk to a member of staff about their child and day at nursery.
