Being situated at Musgrove Park Hospital means our Taunton nursery situated in a place of convenience for parents and carers.

Children attending the nursery have easy access to a variety of local parks as well as access to the town centre and the bus station. This allows our children to experience the outdoors as much as possible by taking part in regular trips, Football Fun and Tops Forest School sessions.

We have developed strong links with local care homes and our preschool children regularly get involved with a ‘Joining Generations’ programme where they socialise and take part in activities with the residents. We also have a good relationship with the local college which is great as our children are allowed to explore their grounds and make regular trips.

The children at Tops Musgrove love getting involved with planting vegetables in the garden and watching them grow. Their homegrown produce can even be used in meals from our delicious no added sugar menus, which are freshly cooked each day by our in-house Chef.

Our main aim under our ethos of ‘flexible nurturing care’ is to ensure we focus on each child’s individuality and ensure that we create activities to meet their own passions and needs.  We build a warm, friendly and safe environment to nurture each child through their early years, and provide a stimulating and loving environment for them to learn and develop.

Tops Musgrove 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!

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.

If you are looking for childcare in Taunton, we would love for you to come and visit us and take a look around our lovely nursery, we look forward to meeting you!
