Welcome to Tops Boscombe!

At Tops Day Nurseries Boscombe we believe in active learning, where children are deeply engaged in the process.

There are no worksheets or workbooks – we want to inspire children to explore, investigate, design and work things out for themselves. Our aim is to inspire children to be adventurous, curious and excited to learn!  Early Years is the time to allow children opportunity to be creative, investigate their environment and build foundations for continued future learning

We provide challenging open ended activities, with plenty of opportunities for the children to explore their environments. We take pride in creating beautiful, purposeful, learning spaces for the children to enjoy.

We want to make a difference to the children’s lives, by having fun and allowing them to be curious, we do this by having caring, nurturing, professional staff who encourage and support children in becoming confident, resilient learners.

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.

What Tops Boscombe parents & carers say

“Tops Day Boscombe has gone above and beyond with the care for my daughter. I'm extremely impressed with the high level of organisation and attention to detail and to my daughter as an individual. ”


“My son has really bloomed at the Tops Boscombe Nursery. He is growing into a strong independent child. The nursery itself is a fun and bright environment and he is looks forward to going every day. We take a great pleasure in seeing photos and videos taken daily by the lovely teacher's which are put on eyLog. ”


“Tops is absolutely fantastic childcare! My daughter adores their after school club, she even begs to go at the weekend. The food is healthy and filling and they genuinely care about every child in their care.”


“My son has been attending Tops Day Nursery in Boscombe since he was around 22 months old and I have always been very happy with the care he has received. The nursery has really helped him with reaching his milestones. He will be sad to leave to attend 'big school' in September which just shows how much he loves attending the nursery. I would highly recommend Tops Boscombe!”
