Welcome to Tops Wimborne, an Ofsted 'Good' nursery

Here at Tops Wimborne 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, and this is all done through their interests.

Being situated at a conservation area means we have an amazing access to the outdoors environment, in which we embrace, as most children we know enjoy being outdoors. 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!
