Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Cattedown Nursery, Plymouth

Enquire as early as possible so you have the best chance to secure a nursery place.

We are delighted to share that we are potentially looking at re-opening Tops Day Nurseries in Cattedown, subject to demand.

The nursery is located opposite delightful Astor Park, with large green spaces for the children to enjoy and a play-park for them to explore on visits out.

Located in between Plymouth’s north quay and the expansive Tothill Park, the nursery benefits from an array of nearby attractions. The full potential of our children can be developed through visits to watch the boats or feed the ducks, and eager Tops Forest School members have the opportunity to explore not one, but three, large parks.

Although close to town, the placement of Cattedown nursery allows easy drop off and collection without the need to navigate through the town centre.

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.

At Tops Day Nurseries our aim is for all children to meet or exceed expected development for their age. We are implementing ‘SchemaPlay’ across all of our settings to help narrow the gap for any children showing signs of delay and to also enhance the learning experiences for all children that attend our settings.

We respect children and believe that they deserve best possible start into their journey of life, that is why we ensure that we provide happy, loving care and education. We’d love for you to pop by and see us!

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.
