Nestled on the edge of Devonport Park, a Grade II registered historical site, our nursery in Devonport benefits from being a stones throw from the memorial garden, heritage trail and children’s adventure play park which boasts a sensory garden and is accessible all year.

Not far from Tops Devonport is the multi-sport complex Brickfields Recreation Ground, which offers both indoor and outdoor activities, as well as several sites of historical interest such as Halfpenny Bridge and the Naval Heritage Centre.

Our beautiful nursery has an impressive 3 gardens, designed specifically for babies under 2, 2-3’s and pre-school children. Tops Devonport also hosts a Hi 5’s breakfast and holiday club for children up to the age of 7

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.

We respect children and believe that they deserve best possible start into their journey of life, that is why we ensure that we provide happy, loving childcare and education. We’d love for you to pop by and see us!

This nursery is part of a group that provides the most eco-sustainable Early Education and Care 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.

Tops Devonport 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!

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.
