Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Lymington Nursery, Hampshire

View our 3D video tour below!

The beautiful Grade II listed building of All Saints Church is home to Tops Lymington All Saints nursery & preschool providing Early Education and Care to children aged 3 months – preschool age.

You can view our hourly rates and optional extras on our price list here: Tops Lymington Price List. Find out more about 2, 3 and 4 year old funding and working tax credits here.

Our Lymington day nursery focus on following the children’s individual needs and interests, setting up activities to help encourage their development in a fun and stimulating way. The nursery is surrounded by the beautiful New Forest, offering opportunities for the children to explore the parks and woods nearby.

We have a highly motivated staff team, who support each other to develop new and exciting ideas for the children. We pride ourselves on knowing each of the children and their families personally, allowing us to not only be there for the child’s welfare and education, but also using our professional knowledge to be there for the parents too.

Our rooms are set up so children can access resources independently, empowering them to explore and investigate at their own pace. We look at the risk benefits of activities, enabling the children to explore new and exciting opportunities, for example our pre-school children have adult led access to a tinkering set, as well as large scale construction with crates and tyres in the garden or climbing trees while on Tops Forest School.

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.

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.

Tops Lymington 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 Lymington day nursery is based closeby to Tops Fawley by the Heather Road Play Area, another of our Early Education and Care settings within the Tops Day Nurseries family to open in the New Forest area.
