We’re all good at Tops Day Nurseries!


goodFollowing the most recent inspection of Tops Winchester, we are pleased to announce all 17 Tops Day Nurseries are either Good or Outstanding, as graded by Ofsted!

After receiving a satisfactory grading in 2012, Tops Winchester were soon waiting for a re-inspection to show off the hard work they had put in to action following Ofsted’s suggested comments. Over 4 years later, Tops Winchester finally received a very well deserved ‘Good’ rating.

The Ofsted inspector commented on the quality of teaching, stating, “Staff actively engage with children and help them achieve through well-planned activities and learning opportunities. Regular observations and assessments help identify individual targets for each child. Staff take children on regular outings to enable them to experience different learning environments and extend their skills. For example, going to the park and the woods where they learn more about safety and the world around them, and practise their physical skills.”

The nursery was also praised for the self-service option for children at lunchtimes, along with the nursery providing healthy and nutritious meals. The inspector also said, “There are excellent methods to monitor the educational programmes to make sure that children participate in a broad range of stimulating activities. Children gain the skills they need for school and make good progress in their learning.”

In 2015, Tops Day Nurseries received 2 Outstanding ratings within days of each other. Tops Portsmouth upgraded from Good whilst Tops Wareham’s Outstanding status was renewed after 6 years.

We would like to thank all staff within the Tops Day Nurseries family for the continuous hard work and dedication they put into their role every day, and a huge congratulations to everyone at Tops Winchester on their GOOD rating!
