Here at our Wimborne nursery, we are passionate about ensuring that children get the best possible learning experiences through our meticulously planning and set up environments. Our environments are adapted to age and stage of the children, from babies to preschool.

The converted old pub building is a fantastic childcare setting and our children benefit from bright, spacious rooms with bay windows, multiple huge gardens for each age group and car park for easy access for parents.

Tops Wimborne was one of the first nurseries within the Tops family to have solar panels fitted and has since been a pioneer in leading the way in sustainability.

The nursery is located in a conservation area which means we have amazing access to the outdoors environment and our children love this about us. We are also right next to By The Way Field, which features a pond and an orienteering route. We like to bring the indoor classroom outside and build on the children’s fascinations, and encourage them to actively learn through play and make connections with their wider world.

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.

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.

We would love for you to come and visit us and take a look around our lovely nursery, we look forward to meeting you!
