A GOOD OFsted Result for Tops Day Nurseries Portsmouth

Staff and Children at Tops Portsmouth, onsite at Queen Alexendra Hospital, are pleased to be celebrating a GOOD rating from Ofsted following their recent inspection.

Tops Portsmouth Day nursery & preschool are truly passionate about providing a great quality of Early Education and Care for all our children and pride themselves in having a safe, secure and family centred environment.

According to the Ofsted report, ‘Children are welcomed warmly by staff. Their key persons know them well. There are good handovers from previous key persons and ongoing communication with parents. Overall, children’s individual needs are known and met securely by staff. Staff are keen for children to reach their potential. This includes children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), and those learning English as an additional language (EAL)’.

The report also noted that;

‘Staff generally provide consistently good support and interactions to help children successfully build on their knowledge and skills. Children have fun and enjoy their play and activities. The interesting resources and activities help to stimulate children’s curiosity and interest in their learning’.

The inspector said, “There is a strong emphasis on including and welcoming families and children from different backgrounds. Children form positive relationships with staff and each other. They learn to be kind and caring towards others and to take care of their environment, such as by tidying up. Children learn about their emotions and how to recognise and manage these.”.

“Staff and the management team form strong relationships and communication with parents. They keep parents well-informed, for example through discussions when children are collected. Parents speak very highly about their experiences of using the nursery. They highlight the good support they receive from staff, the trust they have in the care of their children and the inclusive approach. Parents comment on the progress their children make, such as their confidence, speech and language”.

Simon Evans, Senior Nursery Manager at Tops Portsmouth said, “I am very proud of all the staff and all their hard work, the team put 100% into very they do to ensure the children have the best time at nursery while playing and learning. I am so pleased of the outcome as it gives a true reflection of what our nursery is like”.
