Welcome to Tops Day Nurseries: Prince Rock Nursery in Plymouth

Tops Prince Rock is based in Plymouth and is a short walk from the River Plym. 

With fantastic links to the local community, our nursery & preschool in Prince Rock is the ideal place for your child to learn, play and grow.

Nestled within Lucas Terrace, our Ofsted GOOD nursery and preschool benefits from bright and airy open-plan rooms, with a smaller room for babies adjoining.

Children in preschool have free-flow access to the secure nursery garden which showcases a large allotment, climbing and balancing equipment.

Tothill park is a 2 minute walk away, meaning the children in our care can explore the 6.7 hectares which include playgrounds, walking routes and sport facilities.

This nursery in Plymouth 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 Prince Rock in Plymouth 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 and much more!

Our Prince Rock day nursery is one of the 6 childcare settings within the Tops Day Nurseries family to be based in the Torbay & Plymouth area, including Tops Babbacombe in Torquay, Tops Bretonside in Plymouth City Centre, Tops Devonport at the Green Ark Children’s Centre, Tops Efford at DELL Children’s Centre and Tops Stonehouse near Wyndham Square.
