Press release from: Tops Day Nurseries

Topsie’s Yeovil is the latest nursery to join the Tops Day Nurseries family.

This new addition brings the total number of nurseries owned by Tops Day Nurseries to over 30, providing Early Education and Care to over 5,000 children and employing over 500 colleagues, strengthening its position as one of the largest nursery groups in the South.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the owners, of the 40 place preschool, required a quick sale. The preschool is currently called St Mary’s Pre-School but will be renamed to Topsies Yeovil, becoming an extension to the existing Tops Day Nurseries Yeovil on St Michael's Avenue, Yeovil.

Topsies Yeovil is a community pre-school that was committee run, in a hall within a community hub, also housing a church and various other community facilities. Furthermore, Tops aim to be a part of, and contribute, to each nurseries’ local community so the community aspect surrounding the pre-school will remain strong. Parents will also benefit from flexible bookings, like the rest of the Tops Day Nurseries across the South, where they can book to the nearest 15 minutes. Other benefits include; Sustainable outdoor and indoor environments, no added sugar menus and a range of extra-curricular activities.

Katie Parrish, the current manager of Tops Yeovil, whom recently received a Good from Ofsted, will be managing Topsies Yeovil whilst Tops Day Nurseries recruit for permanent staff. The staff joining Topsies Yeovil will benefit from: flexible hours, our colleague support fund, up to 60% discount off childcare within Tops Day Nurseries, companywide profit bonus scheme and much more…

Katie Parish, Manager of Tops Day Nurseries Yeovil and interim manager of Topsies Yeovil said; “I’m really excited to be welcoming Topsies Yeovil to our little Tops Yeovil family and I’m really looking forward to getting to know all the parents, children and new staff”.

Topsies Yeovil joined the Tops Day Nurseries family of day nurseries in September 2021 and consists of a stimulating room and a great garden space where children can experience plenty of child-initiated free play as well as carefully planned adult-led experiences.

Tops Day Nurseries have recently been awarded a prestigious B-Corp Accreditation and the Eco-School’s Green Flag status and were the first chain of nurseries in the UK to achieve both.

Tops Day Nurseries take great pleasure in welcoming Topsies Yeovil to the family, and look forward to an exciting and positive future.

About Tops Day Nurseries:

Tops Day Nurseries are a family of eco-sustainable day nurseries across the South & South West. Tops have an outstanding reputation in delivering top quality early years education, operating nurseries and out-of-school clubs across Dorset, Hampshire, Devon, Somerset and Wiltshire.

We believe in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible world for all. We aim to achieve this through educating the children of today, so that they can prosper and, in turn, influence the way future generations live.

Every 15 minutes is important because time is valuable. We offer flexible childcare, so parents and carers only pay for the time they need. With extended opening hours, from 6am-8pm including bank holidays*, it means we are here when families need us. We also provide free settling-in sessions and we offer a variety of funding options.

As an environmentally-conscious business, Tops Day Nurseries are always looking for ways to care for the planet in everything they do. All nurseries are rigorously reviewed to ensure the carbon footprint is minimised, as well as having integrated learning sessions for children on the subject of caring for the environment, growing their own food and reducing waste.
