Reviews

9.5 Tops Day Nursery - Havant has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.537)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Tops Day Nursery - Havant is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tops Day Nursery - Havant in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 9 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.704 for Tops Day Nursery - Havant is calculated as follows: ( (78 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.704

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tops Day Nursery - Havant is based on 9 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.833

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My son has been going to Tops Day Nursery for about 3-4 months and since he's been going he's completely come out of his shell. His speech has become incredible! Will sit and have conversations with him and he's only two. Every day he tells me about his day and how much fun he has had. He has learnt to clean up after himself and learnt how to share and play nicely and his manners are out of this world. He always says please and thank-you. I'm so happy I picked this nursery I wouldn't change. The staff are so friendly and kind. They ate so much and you can tell as soon you walk into the building. His eating since being there has improved. I recommend this nursery to anyone I know. I'm over the moon with the choice of putting my son here. Making memories with his friends and teachers is all that matters. My son loves this nursery. The people, the toys.. he has fun every day.

Fab nursery!
My daughter is very well looked after and feels very comfortable here now after a tearful start - staff were very helpful in finding different ways to encourage separation from myself and her Dad, and now she loves coming here. My son also used to attend before he started school and he loved it too!
Any issues we've come across have been dealt with quickly and efficiently and we are very happy with how it is run.
We always feel listened to and very much involved with things such as progress and learning.
There's plenty for the children to do and the standard of care is fantastic!

January was my son's first month and it didn't take him long to settle in at all. We have noticed in the short time he has been going how well he listens to others. I cannot fault what they do at the nursery and the staff all seem friendly and approachable.

Our daughter started at Tops Day Nursery - Havant in September 2016. She was very shy at first and would get quite upset when we left her. It was such a comfort knowing that all of the staff there were so friendly and patient with her and before long she was running in beaming with joy to see all of her friends and her teachers!! I cannot praise them enough! The food range they supply is brilliant and it's encouraged her to want to try new things! She loves helping me tidy at home now and I can see her using so many new skills she has developed since joining! The app that parents are able to use to watch their children's development is outstanding and I have never known of any other nursery to have such technology it's great!!

I'm very happy with the standard of what you offer and the approach to children. I just would like you to read more to the children and spend time on basic science, for example, the first digits or letters.
I am a foreigner and I know that the children of such families may have a harder start in life so I enrolled my daughter in your kindergarten when she was one year old.
I think it was one of the best decisions of my life because it really helped her to socialise with English children.
Now she is three and a half years old and she can speak English and Polish.

Extremely friendly place. My son loves it here. I'd definitely recommend to friends and family. They are very welcoming and I always get observations on my son, which is always nice to see that he's getting on so well.
