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 Musgrove received some great results from their internal audit earlier in March. There was huge progress in the use of the outdoor space and the opportunities provided for the children. The report also mentioned that the children feel safe and snuggle with an attentive team and the mentoring and training opportunities help staff to develop their skills and knowledge progressing the quality of teaching ensuring consistency.
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.
