Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Bearwood Nursery, Dorset

We are delighted to announce the exchange of a property in Bearwood, Bournemouth that are converting into a new day nursery for children between 3 months – 4, as well as an afterschool and holiday club for primary school aged children.

The new setting, Tops Bearwood, will replace what used to be Bearwood Convenience Store on Magna Road. Over the coming months Tops Day Nurseries will be working hard to renovate and re-purpose the entire site to create a top quality, secure eco-day nursery.

For over 31 years, Tops Day Nurseries have played a key role in educating the next generation across Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon. Renowned for flexibility, families at the new Tops Bearwood nursery will be able to benefit from 15 minute, flexible bookings meaning they will only pay for the hours they need.  Tops Forest School will also have a base here.

We respect children and believe that they deserve the best possible start into their journey of life, that is why we ensure that we provide happy, loving care and education!

The children at Tops benefit from our balanced no-added sugar menus that we have designed to support growth and development using the Children’s Food Trust Recommendations.  To view our healthy, nutritious recipes click here.

This nursery is part of a group that provides the most eco-sustainable Early Education and Care 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.

A provisional opening date has been set for the end of November 2021, but to keep up to date with the progress, visit Tops Bearwood’s Facebook page and keep your eyes peeled here, on our website.
