Welcome to Exeter Nursery! Located on Prince Of Wales Road, Tops Exeter offers children the opportunity to explore various areas throughout Exeter and beyond. At Tops, we have been dedicated to providing outstanding early education and care for over 30 years.

Our team at Exeter Nursery is passionate about nurturing the development and well-being of children from 3 months to school age, encouraging their curiosity and love for learning every step of the way.


Why choose Tops?


Choosing Tops means more than just childcare; it’s about nurturing your little one’s development in a supportive environment. We prioritise flexibility with convenient booking options in 15-minute blocks, tailored to fit your busy schedule!

Our menus feature nutritious meals with no added sugar, including tasty venison dishes, promoting healthy eating habits right from the start.

We offer a variety of extracurricular activities at Exeter Nursery, including Tops Forest School, Tops Cooking School, Yoga, and Boogie Mites. These activities are designed to be fun and engaging while helping your child learn and develop new skills.

Additionally, these activities embody one of our core values: sustainability. Through initiatives such as recycling, gardening, and energy conservation, we teach children to respect and care for our planet, nurturing a sense of responsibility from an early age.

You can view our hourly rates and optional extras on our price list here:. Find out more about 2, 3 and 4 year old funding and working tax credits 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. ‘SchemaPlay have recently created a video to help parents understand what schemes are, and how these can be identified and promoted at home. Watch the full video 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.
