Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Havant Nursery, Portsmouth

View or 3D video tour below!

Tops Havant is a day nursery & preschool based on Trosnant Primary school Site in Havant, in which we have a great working together relationship with. We provide Early Education and Care for children from 3 months until they are ready to start school and also have a holiday club for 5-7 year olds.

View our hourly rates and optional extras on our price list here: Tops Havant Price List or to learn more about our Schema Play sessions and 15 minute flexible structure click here. You can also find information about 2, 3 and 4 year old funding and working tax credits here.

We are a friendly and active nursery and are very lucky to have a great outdoor space. Throughout the day we enjoy painting, gluing, play dough, sand play, water play and of course ensuring we do lots of messy play activities.

Additional Care
Tops Havant no longer offers a Hi5’s Holiday Club but instead will be offering additional care outside the scheduled hours at the nursery’s standard hourly rate.

Our Havant nursery and pre-school holds a fantastic accolade of being the first day nursery in the UK to achieve the Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free School title.

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.

Please feel free to pop in and visit us, as we would love to show you around.

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 Havant 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 Havant day nursery is one of the five Early Education and Care settings within the Tops Day Nurseries family to be based in the Portsmouth area, including Tops Copnor at the Roko Health Club, Tops Lakeside at 1000 Lakeside Business Park, Tops Portsmouth at Queen Alexandra Hospital and Tops Southsea on Bruce Road.
