Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Havant Nursery, Portsmouth

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 childcare for children from 3 months until they are ready to start school and also have a holiday club for 5-7 year olds.

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.

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.

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 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 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 childcare 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.
