Tops Day Nursery, the leading provider of top quality and flexible childcare in Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire and Somerset, is excited to announce the opening of its 19th nursery, based at Salisbury District Hospital in Odstock.  The nursery will provide high quality, happy and nurturing care for children and babies from 3 months to school age, as well as a holiday club for children up to 15 years.

Toybox Day Nursery

Toybox Day Nursery has been operating for over 29 years and provides care for the 4000 hospital staff onsite, as well as children in the local area.  Tops Day Nurseries now has 19 nurseries across the south of England, and the company brings with it a tried and tested formula for running a very successful and responsive childcare service.

Cheryl Hadland founded Tops Day Nurseries back in 1990, when her own children were young and needed childcare. She opened her first nursery in Parkstone, Dorset and the company has gone from strength to strength. Her most important criteria for a Tops Day Nursery is that her grandchildren, or indeed any other parents children or grandchildren, will be happy and loved and safe at the nursery and enabled to develop and learn to their best possible potential, and this is why Tops run day nurseries. Tops Day Nurseries now serves over 3000 children and their families.

Cheryl Hadland, Managing Director of Tops Day Nurseries, commented: “For over 27 years Tops Day Nurseries have been making a difference to children within our care, and I am delighted we have won the tender to work with the team at Salisbury hospital, extending their opening hours and the opportunities on offer”.

A number of extra benefits will be offered to Tops Salisbury families. As well as flexibility, we will also be introducing Tops Forest School, Cooking School, tooth brushing, Rugby Rangers and much more! As part of the Potty Training Academy, we will also be supporting both parents and children to excel with potty training. We will also accept 2 and 3 year old funding, as well as accepting 30 hours funding for eligible families from September.

I take great pleasure in welcoming Tops Salisbury to the family, and look forward to see what the future brings for this nursery.”
