Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Charminster Nursery, Bournemouth
We are sorry to advise you that on Friday 27th March we will be temporarily closing Tops Charminster due to the recent announcement from the government. We will continue to offer childcare at Tops Bournemouth for those parents who fall under the ‘Key Worker’ list.
Tops Charminster day nursery & preschool in Bournemouth provides childcare for children aged 18 months – preschool age and also features a Hi 5’s holiday club for children up to the age of 11. Understanding the importance of empowering children helps them to grow in their development by using their own thoughts and ideas, providing them with an environment that supports no fear of failure and a positive attitude.
At our Charminster nursery, we provide children with regular outings to nearby woodland areas and parks, where they are able to explore and collect natural resources. The natural resources that the children collect are used within the setting to create and provide exciting set ups within the nursery and provide them with different learning opportunities.
We would love for you to meet our friendly team and take a look at our wonderful set ups within the nursery, we hope to see you soon! If your child is under 18 months, our Boscombe nursery and Bournemouth nursery would love to meet you!
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.
Our Charminster day nursery is one of the four childcare settings within the Tops Day Nurseries family based in the Bournemouth area, including Tops Boscombe at Wolverton Road, Tops Bournemouth at the Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospital and Tops Christchurch based in the old Priory Hall.Arrange a visit

What Charminster Nursery parents & carers say
“My little girl is excited every morning before nursery. She talks about each staff member by name and what she has been doing that day. I am always warmly welcomed as I walk in and am told how my daughter has been that day and what she has been up to. I get along with all the staff who are always happy to listen and answer any questions. Highly recommend this nursery.”
“ My daughter has excelled since attending Tops at Charminster. I have been blown away by the care they provide. My daughter asks to go to nursery every day and talks very fondly of everyone. She has made some lovely friends and is very excited to move up to the pre school room!”
“ All 3 of my kids have gone to this nursery over the years and I think it's a great place to send them my youngest would never go to anyone or talk to anyone but me, but since I changed his nursery to Tops Charminster he has come right out of his shell with tops forest school and all the activities they provide he feels safe and happy and now won't shut up.”
“ Tops Charminster have been fantastic since day one with our little boy who started with them in the summer. After problems arising with other childcare, we felt that a nursery setting suited our situation and being able to book hours that you need to the nearest 15 minutes, it fitted with my work schedule perfectly.”
