We are extremely proud of our Outstanding Ofsted rating and impressive online social media followings, where we provide inspiration for other childcare providers across the UK. We have also been named Nursery of the Year South 2019 by National Day Nurseries Association.

Being situated on the Isle of Wight means we have an endless supply of natural resources and we are able to provide exciting opportunities for your children to explore nearby woodland areas, collecting resources to enhance their learning environment within the nursery. We pride ourselves in creating new and exciting set ups within the nursery and a variety of different learning opportunities.

Tops Newport run a popular Forest School, which allows the children to explore nature through nature, build dens, take safe risks and explore the local area.

Our focus is to capture the magical imagination of your child’s mind to excite and inspire them within their learning environment. As a nursery, we understand the importance of empowerment for the children. It helps your child to flourish in there development through their own thoughts and learning, providing them with an environment with no fear of failing and brimming with positivity.

At Tops Day Nurseries our aim is for all children to meet or exceed expected development for their age. We are implementing ‘SchemaPlay’ across all of our settings to help narrow the gap for any children showing signs of delay and to also enhance the learning experiences for all children that attend our settings. ‘SchemaPlay have recently created a video to help parents understand what schemes are, and how these can be identified and promoted at home. Watch the full video here’.

Children are naturally curious and we aim bring to life stories and role play activities which fulfils their curiosity as well as incorporating sensory experiences, real life resources and the children’s interest to create these.

The children at Tops benefit from our balanced no-added sugar menus that we have designed to support growth and development using the Children’s Food Trust Recommendations.  To view our healthy, nutritious recipes click here.

Tops Newport also implements extra-curricular activities in line with the rest of the Tops Day Nurseries family. For example, Tops Cooking School, Boogie Mites, yoga, tooth brushing, Football Fun and much more!

This nursery is part of a group that provides the most eco-sustainable Early Education and Care in the UK, being respectful of the environment and acting to reduce, re-use and recycle resources is an important part of the culture and routine for the children and staff.

We would love for you to come and visit us and take a look around our lovely nursery, we look forward to meeting you!
