Welcome to Hi5's Babbacombe!
Tops Babbacombe provides before- and after-school clubs and a Hi5’s Holiday Club service at the nursery setting for school children up to the age of 11 years old.
The site for the Hi5’s club is ideal for parents whether travelling into or out of Torquay, located at Tops Day Nursery’s Babbacombe setting. The setting boasts a large garden, which the children will be able to access throughout the day, lending itself to exploration, leaning and play, and is only a short walk away from the shoreline.
Often the children will take the winding, wooded walk down to Oddicombe Beach and along the scenic Coast Path, as well as having the opportunity to explore areas around Babbacombe and Torquay. The setting also runs a Generations Programme, linked with the local care home, encouraging the children to be an active member within their local community.
For the Hi5’s Holiday Club we offer a range of activities, including sports and team games, science, arts and crafts, music and movement, woodwork, cooking and many more!
The plans for the Hi5’s Holiday Club are influenced by the interests of the children who enrolled for the previous holiday club and regularly attend our out of school club. We are aware that children’s interests change on a regular basis, so our plans are designed to be flexible to ensure that the children’s needs are catered for during their attendance.
