Welcome to Tops Southsea, Portsmouth

Our nursery in Southsea, Portsmouth caters for children aged 3 months to school age, as well as providing a Hi 5’s after school and holiday club service for school children up to 8 years old. The nursery is located on Bruce Road, just a short walk to Southsea sea front.

Tops Day Nurseries Southsea is set within a large detached house with a garden mainly laid to lawn, but with areas for the children to grow flowers and vegetables. In addition, there is a brilliant outside play area with a special soft rubber compound surface to protect the children should they fall.

Tops Southsea has a baby room for under 2’s, a spacious room for 2 & 3 year olds as well as a preschool room.

We are able to take advantage of our location near the beach, Natural History Museum, library, Southsea Common and parks to ensure that children are given the opportunity to spend time outside the nursery during periods of good weather.
