Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Copnor Nursery, Portsmouth

Enquire as early as possible so you have the best chance to secure a nursery place.

Tops Day Nurseries Copnor is based within Roko Health Club on Copnor Road in Portsmouth and provides Early Education and Care for children aged 12 weeks – preschool age.

You can view our hourly rates and optional extras on our price list here: Tops Copnor Price List. Find out more about 2, 3 and 4 year old funding and working tax credits here.

Roko is a busy member’s health and fitness club in Hilsea and our nursery is considered to be a valuable addition, although you don’t need to be a Roko member to use our childcare services. Parents can benefit from a large car park for drop off and pick-ups.

Our Copnor day nursery & preschool is situated in an ideal place for parents looking for Early Education and Care in the Hilsea area and has close transport links, being on the main bus route and a short distance from Hilsea Train Station.

Exciting activities are arranged based on the children’s interests and are designed to captivate their imaginations. Children are encouraged to explore, get messy, have fun and learn valuable life and development skills.

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’.

The children at Tops benefit from our balanced no-added sugar menus that we have designed to support growth and development using the Children’s Food Trust Recommendations.  To view our healthy, nutritious recipes click here.

Tops Copnor also implements extra-curricular activities in line with the rest of the Tops Day Nurseries family. For example, Tops Cooking School, Boogie Mites, yoga, tooth brushing, Football Fun and much more!

Our Copnor day nursery is one of the five Early Education and Care settings within the Tops Day Nurseries to open in the Portsmouth area, following Tops Portsmouth at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Tops Lakeside at 1000 Lakeside Business Park, Tops Southsea on Bruce Road and Tops Havant, based in Trosnant Primary School.
