Welcome to Tops Corfe Mullen

At Tops Corfe Mullen, each room has created a communication friendly space to facilitate our children to feel comfortable and confident in a space which is situated in a quiet and calm environment.

We strive to engage with our children in those precious one-to-one instances which is also a fundamental part of a child’s development, as this encourages them to express themselves without any pressure and making them feel proud of themselves, whilst giving the practitioner an unique platform to empower these cherished ideas.

The nursery provides numerous opportunities for risk taking play where staff can support and encourage the children to explore innovative and exciting experiences.  There are many researched and documented advantages of encouraging our children to engage in risk taking play such as empowering them to further develop existing learnt skills as well as giving them a sense of satisfaction as they accomplish something that they may not have done before.

We also have a large garden, and a good range of climbing, balancing and sliding equipment, a sand pit and planting areas. We like to access the outdoor play area in all weathers!

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 Corfe Mullen parents & carers say

“Each member of staff has been amazing and have allowed us to take our time to settle in gradually. No question has been too small and they always have time for you. The staff have been tentative, nurturing and caring not just to my son but to me his mum during this transition of settling in. I feel very confident in them and am so pleased with our choice.”


“ Nursery are absolutely fabulous in supporting my child with additional needs. All staff go way above and beyond the call of duty in the daily care of my son. Wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend. The facilities are fantastic and the outside space is far better than many other nurseries in the area.”


“Really lovely nursery, have always felt confident that my daughter will be well cared for and will do fun and educational activities throughout the day. The best part is that she loves going there! I also love the eylog communication, it really brightens my day when I get a notification through of something she's done that day.”

Kate M

“The staff are excellent with her and provide her with that reassurance and 'Mum' care that I can't give when at work. I also enjoy the e log system of emails sent telling me what she has been up to during the day.”


“The garden is huge – unusual for most nurseries.”
