Tops Day Nurseries provide recognition that their settings and teams maintain and improve provision in order to offer the highest quality learning and development experiences for all children and their families. Children who experience high quality provision are well placed to achieve higher outcomes at school and develop better social, emotional and cognitive abilities necessary for life-long learning.
Tops Devonport received some great results from their internal audit earlier in March. The audit showed progress in the nurseries learning environments which creates inviting spaces for the children to access and explore. The report also mentioned how the team support the children’s confidence by being good role models and supporting the children with their interests.
The Tops Day Nurseries Quality Assurance scheme was launched in January 2017 and provides a route for Leaders and Managers to raise standards through a process of self-evaluation and self-assessment. This involves practitioners in a cycle of continuous improvement in which the provision is audited against a set of standards.
Director of Early Years Audit and Training, Amy Alderson, audits each of our settings on an annual basis to ensure that each setting is compliant with current legislation and best practice.
Quality improvement is a continuous cycle based on planning; implementing; reviewing and analysing. It is a never ending journey involving children, parents and professionals.
