Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Portsmouth Nursery, Hampshire

13 years ago we opened our doors for children and their families. We have delivered childcare to many wonderful families over the years helping the children develop and grow to be ready for the big school.

Our nursery is based onsite at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth and caters for babies from 3 months to preschool age. We have a brand new eco-cabin, which has created additional places for preschool.

For all these years, we have created a fun and secure place to learn. A place where children can create friendships, read, paint, make lots of different marks, be imaginative, jump, build, sing and simply have lots of fun.

Our rooms are regularly transformed using different themes based on the children’s interests… take a look at our gallery below to see how we turned Pre-school into the castle from Jack and the Beanstalk!

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.

Our Portsmouth 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 Roko Health Club, Tops Havant based at Trosnant Primary School, Tops Lakeside at 1000 Lakeside Business Park and Tops Southsea on Bruce Road.
