Staff and Children at Tops Havant are pleased to be celebrating a GOOD rating from Ofsted following their recent inspection.
Tops Havant 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:
“Staff have warm, nurturing, and caring bonds with children. Children feel safe and secure with their trusted adults. They know staff will provide them with reassurance and cuddles when they are unsettled”.
The report also noted that; “Children are keen to learn, and they enjoy taking part in activities that capture their interests. For example, they eagerly take part in music and movement activities”.
The inspector said, “Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities have their needs met well. The special educational needs and disabilities coordinator ensures that staff provide children with the environment they need to succeed. For example, children use a quieter space and their trusted adult to help regulate their emotions when needed. This helps children to flourish in a way that is best suited to their needs”.
“Parent partnerships are a real strength of the nursery. Parents comment on the secure bonds that they have with the staff as a family. Staff go above and beyond to support the community and be there for the whole family. They support parents with home learning ideas by providing stories and games as well as supporting them with practical help, such as finding a dentist. This helps build the trust and partnerships with parents even further”.
Claire McQuilken, Deputy Manager and Katie Humphreys, Nursery Manager at Tops Havant said; “We are incredibly proud of our team and the children here at Tops Havant and the journey they have been on since we joined them 4 years ago. The successes we have achieved including our recent Ofsted inspection are only possible thanks to the dedication of the staff and the support we receive from the families that use and have used Tops Havant over the years. The report clearly shows what caring and nurturing bonds the entire team have with not only the children but also their extended families. For this we will be forever proud to be a part of the Tops Havant family”.
