Green Top Nursery is located in the heart of Clayton village and feeds to the 3 local schools (St Anthony’s, Clayton C of E and Clayton Village Primary).
The nursery operates from the ground floor of a two story building. We have 2 grassed areas to the front and side of the building (with the front area also having a soft play area) another 2 areas at the back that are concrete allowing for bikes, ball play and free play with familiar everyday equipment such as crates, cardboard tubes, pots and pans, sheets etc and a small sensory garden to the side.
We are very big on outdoor play and have free flow access from the Preschool room to the front playground and provide free flow from 2-3's room to the side, grassed area.
Last year we installed CCTV which covers all of our outdoor areas to ensure our children are in the safest environment possible and we are currently in talks about installing CCTV in all of our rooms.
The nursery is open from 7am–6pm 5 days a week 51 weeks of the year as we are closed for 1 week over Xmas and all bank holidays.
We run a before and after school club and also have a holiday club .
We are a fully inclusive setting with all rooms having disability access and we also have a disabled toilet.
