Press release

Tops Day Nurseries Salisbury were delighted to welcome John Glen MP and Secretary of State to officially re-open the day nursery at Odstock Hospital.  Salisbury’s Deputy Mayor / Mayor Elect and Unison Rep. Michael Osment also joined them in celebrating the opening.

Tops Day Nurseries, Salisbury (formerly Toy Box Day Nursery) is based at Salisbury District Hospital, Odstock and will be open from 6am until 8pm for hospital staff and non-hospital staff, and especially for parents who work shift hours and need the flexibility that Tops offers. The nursery environment provides an excellent opportunity for children to learn, play and communicate with other children and adults.

Cheryl Hadland, Managing Director of Tops Day Nurseries commented “We are so pleased to be offering a fresh new start to this nursery, with newly refurbished rooms and some lovely new equipment, and also some familiar and long-standing staff amongst the team of caring professionals ready to teach and care for local children and toddlers.  Investment in the early years is the best investment this country can make. Our children are our future, so giving them the best start in life is really important for them and us.  I think John was quite tickled with our new bamboo toothbrushes (instead of plastic) and with the Duffy (the turtle)’s Lucky escape from Plastic Pollution!”

Tops Salisbury is part of a successful family of day nurseries that provides the most eco-sustainable childcare and education in the UK, being respectful of the environment and acting to reduce, reuse and recycle resources is an important part of the culture and routine for the children and staff.

Local MP, John Glen commented “I congratulate Tops Day Nurseries on the exciting innovations they have brought to the nursery at Odstock Hospital, offering outstanding facilities for both hospital staff and the local community.

The government has put a lot of funding into ensuring childcare is available, so it is great to see this is complimented with high-quality childcare providers such as Tops Day Nurseries. Tops Salisbury is an excellent provision and one that parents should have confidence in.”
