Upstairs we have a beautiful baby and toddler room filled with real, natural resources for the children to explore. We have a separate sleep room to allow routines from home to be followed within the nursery. We also have children's toilets attached to the room to cater for those potty training, who may be following the Potty Training Academy program.

Downstairs, we have a fantastic preschool filled with treasures, activities, books, crafts and more. The children have free-flow access to the large garden from the preschool, where they can play, climb, dig and roam throughout the day.

Located for easy access whether you're traveling into or out of Torquay, our Babbacombe nursery benefits from being a crab walk away from an unbroken shoreline, complete with a winding, wooded walk down Oddicombe Beach Hill, and the scenic Coast Path.

Located on the main Babbacombe road, the children have the opportunity to explore areas throughout Babbacombe and Torbay. Children at our day nursery also benefit from weekly visits to our local care home, where they take part in our joining generations program.

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.

This nursery 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.

Children at Tops benefit from numerous extra-curricular activities that are on offer. From Yoga and Meditation classes to Tops Forest School and Tops Cooking School, there will be something that takes your child's fancy! Click here for more information on our extra- curricular activities.

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

Our Babbacombe day nursery and preschool is one of the 6 Early Education and Care settings within the Tops Day Nurseries family to open in the Torbay and Plymouth area, following Tops Bretonside in Plymouth city centre, Tops Devonport at Green Ark Children's Centre, Tops Efford at DELL Children's Centre, Tops Prince Rock and Tops Stonehouse near Wyndham Square. At Tops, we understand a healthy, balanced diet and regular physical activity are essential for children's health and well-being. With that said we have designed a balanced menu to support growth and development using the Children's Food Trust recommendations. To view our healthy, nutritious recipes click here.
