Welcome to Hi5's Lakeside!

Tops Lakeside provides before- and after-school clubs and a Hi5’s Holiday Club service for school children 5-7 years old at the nursery setting, which is located opposite the business park at 1000 Lakeside North Harbour.

The site has an extended eco-cabin classroom extension, which has been designed with a familiar open plan and bright rooms. Next to Cosham Park and close to museums, castles and outdoor spaces, the setting is ideal for those living or working in the Portsmouth area.

The Hi5’s Holiday Club offers a wide range of activities, both indoors and out, including science, woodwork, arts and crafts, cultural appreciation days, sports and team games, music and movement, cooking, and many more!

The weekly plans for the Hi5’s Holiday Club are influenced by the interests of the children who regularly attend our out of school clubs and those who were enrolled for the previous holiday club, and we are aware that children’s interests change on a regular basis, so our plans are flexible and designed to ensure that the children’s needs are catered for during their attendance.
