Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Efford Nursery, Plymouth
Our Efford day nursery & preschool in Plymouth is part of DELL Children’s Centre – for children and their families covering Deer Park, Efford, Lipson and Laira. The nursery provides childcare for children from 3 months – preschool age and also features a Hi 5’s breakfast and holiday club for children up to the age of 11.
Tops Efford is fortunate enough to be nestled a stone’s throw away from the beautiful Efford Marsh– a breathtaking Nature Reserve which spans 28 hectares. Tops Forest School children could have the opportunity to explore sensory fields of wild garlic and bluebells and try their hand at tracking badgers or identifying wildflowers and trees.
Our bright open-plan rooms allow children in our care to explore a vast array of natural resources. The children in preschool have free-flow access into our impressive garden space, which features a climbing frame, slide, sandpit and much more.
We respect children and believe that they deserve the best possible start into their journey of life, that is why we ensure that we provide happy, loving care and education. We’d love for you to pop by and see us!
Tops Efford 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.
Tops Efford 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!
