Welcome to Hi5's Bretonside!

Tops Bretonside 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.

With the site located in the heart of Plymouth, this Hi5’s Holiday Club is perfect for parents working in the city centre. The setting is home to Tops Day Nurseries’ Bretonside, which is established in a Grade II listed terrace row with preserved original features dating back to the 1800s.

Situated within the growing arts community, the children have opportunities to visit the Theatre Royal and the Mayflower House of Arts nearby, as well as having access to numerous historical sites such as the Mayflower Steps Memorial, not forgetting the museums and ancient buildings around Bretonside. There is also the North Quay with its aquarium and waterways, which offer plenty of boat spotting activities and ducks to feed! We also regularly visit the Elizabethan Garden’s water fountain, and Hoe Park’s lighthouse.

The Hi5’s Holiday Club offers a wide range of activities, both indoors and out, including woodwork, arts and crafts, sports and team games, music and movement, cooking, science and many more!

The rolling-weekly plans for the Hi5’s Holiday Club are influenced by the interests of the children who regularly attend our out of school clubs and those who were enrolled for the previous holiday club. We are aware that children’s interests change on a regular basis, so our plans are flexible and designed to ensure that the children’s needs are catered for during their attendance.
