Tops Efford is fortunate enough to be nestled a stone's throw away from the beautiful Efford Marsh- a breathtaking Nature Reserve which spans 28 hectares. Tops Forest School children could have the opportunity to explore sensory fields of wild garlic and bluebells and try their hand at tracking badgers or identifying wildflowers and trees.

Our bright open-plan rooms allow children in our care to explore a vast array of natural resources. The children in preschool have free-flow access into our impressive garden space, which features a climbing frame, slide, sandpit and much more.

At Tops Day Nurseries our aim is for all children to meet or exceed expected development for their age. We are implementing 'SchemaPlay' across all of our settings to help narrow the gap for any children showing signs of delay and to also enhance the learning experiences for all children that attend our settings.

We respect children and believe that they deserve the best possible start into their journey of life, that is why we ensure that we provide happy, loving care and education.

The children at Tops benefit from our balanced no-added sugar menus that we have designed to support growth and development using the Children's Food Trust Recommendations.

Tops Efford is part of a group that provides the most eco-sustainable Early Education and Care 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 Efford also implements extra-curricular activities in line with the rest of the Tops Day Nurseries family. 

We have a number of nurseries in Plymouth and over the Christmas period (usually 2 weeks) we offer childcare at a minimum of 2 of our nurseries in Plymouth. We will always try to ensure we allocate a member of the team from each of the closed nurseries to maintain continuity for your child during this period.
