9.9 Tops Day Nursery - Newport has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.916)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Tops Day Nursery - Newport is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 33 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tops Day Nursery - Newport in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 26 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 4.916 for Tops Day Nursery - Newport is calculated as follows: ( (361 Excellents x 5) + (33 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 394 Ratings = 4.916

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tops Day Nursery - Newport is based on 26 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 26 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target Reached = 1

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

I can't praise the pre-school enough. My daughter loves to go and always has a great time. She attends 2 different pre-schools and this one is by far her favourite. As a parent, the staff know exactly what she has done all day and feedback on everything. We will be sending our second child to the nursery as we have been so impressed with the care we receive.
I love that the children engage in themes and that the children's work on the walls is regularly updating.

This is an outstanding nursery. I cannot fault a thing and I have been using the nursery since my son was 12m old (1yr 2m ago). The staff are attentive and caring and seem genuinely interested in the children as individuals. We have experienced some complex family issues during the time we have used the nursery and this has all been dealt with, with professionalism and sensitivity. My son loves going and happily waves bye bye as we leave him.

My little girl is in the pre-school room and she absolutely loves it, and so do I. The staff are very welcoming and trusting. They build unique bonds with each child and this truly shows each time I drop off, pick up and attend their plays. All the staff are very helpful and will go out of their way to make your child feel safe and happy. I wouldn't send my little girl anywhere else, as Tops are the best start before big school. Thank you!

My son will be 3 in September and has been going to Tops Day Nursery - Newport since he was 7 months old. He loves it! He talks a lot about what he's been doing at nursery and looks forward to his days there. The staff are all very approachable and friendly, and I always feel assured that my son is in safe hands.

My little girl has started attending Tops 3 weeks ago. I have been very impressed with the staff who have all been lovely in reassuring her (and me) on drop offs and during her time there. They have always updated me on how her day was and they are brilliant at updating eylog where I receive a log of everything she did, ate, the time she slept, etc. As a parent, this really reassures me and makes me feel like a part of her day. I am very happy to have chosen Tops and feel like the staff are absolutely brilliant!!

Tops Day Nursery is the only place I would send my child. She has been attending since she was 11 months old and now returns for Mini Beasts. The staff are like a second family, and have always treated my daughter very well. She loves attending and misses the children and staff when she has to go back to school. The mini beasts always offer fun and exciting things to do, and I am so glad that we are still able to send her back in school holidays. The hours are flexible and as mentioned the staff are second to none.

Our daughter has been at Tops Day Nurseries - Newport for around 2 years, she has loved every minute of her time there and has been supported to develop a variety of new skills. Unfortunately, we are moving out of the local area so our daughter is transferring nurseries but we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tops Day to anyone else looking for a nursery in Newport. Thank you to everyone involved in her care!

My little boy has been at Tops Day Nurseries - Newport since I went back to work when he was 5 months old. As he was very young when he started, I was very anxious about leaving him, but all of the staff here put me at ease. The nursery has a fantastic atmosphere, and my little boy always has a great time when he's there. The communication between the nursery and myself is also excellent. And I always enjoy reading the observations recorded on Eylog. My little boy is so sociable, and I think this is a lot to do with the interaction through the nursery. I also enjoy seeing all of the new activities and materials that have been implemented since he has been there. I have no negative feedback whatsoever, and always highly recommend the nursery if I am asked.

My son has attended this nursery for the last 2 years and he loves it. I never have to worry about him when he is in the nursery as I know that the care he receives is brilliant. He starts school this year and I know he will miss being at nursery every day. The room leaders and key workers are fantastic and communication between them and us is always very good. Well done everyone, keep up the good work!

My grandson has been attending the nursery for just over a month I've dropped him off a few times and each time I've seen him settled in well by the staff in the room. I enjoy seeing his updates via my daughter using the eylog app. It shows that he has a good day and lots of fun. I'm so happy that my daughter has chosen this nursery for my son as I can see how happy and settled he is here. We viewed various nurseries in our area and felt that this one was the best one. The atmosphere and the recourses were great especially the gardens seeing as my grandson loves the outdoors. I hope to see him grow and develop more throughout his time at this nursery. Thank you for the great care you give him!!

Our son started nursery when he was 1.5 years. Although he loved going to nursery he had some difficulties settling in. We found the staff to be really understanding and supportive throughout this time.
All the staff always make an effort to speak to us (parents) when we drop him off and whenever we have seen staff outside of the nursery they always speak to us and our son.
We find the nursery very flexible and wouldn't hesitate to put any future children into Tops Day Nursery - Newport.

My son has been attending for around a month now and he's settled in really well. I was worried about how he would settle as he had never been away from me but he goes in and goes off to play. He absolutely loves it and he has come on so well. He is only 10 months but I feel that he's learning so much. I would highly recommend this nursery. They have done amazingly at settling him in and are great at telling me what's he has done all day. They are also happy for me to phone as much as I like to see how he's doing. I couldn't imagine sending him to another nursery now that he's so happy here. They are also really helpful when you need to make changes to hours. The flexible booking is great for a parent like me who works shifts. They are very accommodating to all types of families. I really appreciate everything they have done to help not only my son feel happy and safe but also for me to feel confident and happy leaving him in their care. Thank you for all your hard work!

I am very happy that my son goes to Tops Day Nursery - Newport. He has been attending Tops since he was 3 months old and the staff have been wonderful in giving me the confidence and reassurance to return to work knowing that he was well cared for and nurtured and then in encouraging his learning and life skills through each developmental stage. Staff have all been brilliant as in each class they have known exactly the best way to support him, not only with his learning but also with his emotional needs. As a result, he is a happy boy who loves going to Nursery. He is sociable, has made friends and he is achieving his educational goals as he has lots of fun whilst learning. I notice the lovely and varied play activities and play stations that staff devise and set up in the room each day and think its brilliant. I am so grateful to all the staff including the admin staff and the manager - everyone is very kind and helpful and we really appreciate their hard work.

My son has attended Tops Day Nurseries - Newport since he was two years old - he is now four and a half - and he has absolutely loved every day.

The effort that they go to in creating interesting and educational activities for the children is second to none. The skills of the children are tracked carefully to ensure they reach the milestones and interventions designed to suit the needs and interests of each child.

The staff at tops have looked after our twin girls since they were 6 mnths old, from baby room to preschool. The facilities are fabulous, perfect for entertaining and teaching and fun.my girls have never said to me that they don't want to go,because they enjoy every single day they are there. I almost wish they didn't have to go to school as I wonder if they will enjoy it as much! The staff are fabulous, so helpful and thoughtful and kind to our girls. I would recommend them to everyone, we recommended the nursery to our friend and now both her children go to Tops.

Having supported our son from 9 months old to now nearing school age, we have experienced every level of the nursery and could not be happier with the service we have enjoyed at every step. We were naturally worried as first time parents using childcare to return to work, however they calmed these very quickly and have provided excellent care.

I have two children who attend of different ages and both thoroughly enjoy their time there in fact so much so I struggle to get them out the door at home time. Their mobility, speech and interaction with other children has excelled since coming to this nursery. I couldn't be happier and neither could my little ones.

My son has been in Tops since he was ten months old and it highly benefits him because of the little boy he's become now at two and a half. The staff are really good at Tops and very supportive. They do lots of different activities and have a good routined schedule. The e log app is amazing to receive updates of your childs day when you're at work. They have a huge garden with lots of toys outside for them to play. My son enjoys going to nursery apart from the odd time he cries but stops when I leave! He has made friends which is great for his social skills. The nursery also has a pre school which is great and one less thing to have to think about. I highly recommend Tops!

My eldest son joined Tops Newport back in 2009 and loved everyday there up until he started school. My youngest is now at Tops Newport and has the most amazing time. The staff are excellent with the children and have always had great communication with me. My children have gained so much and I can't thank the staff enough for what they do.

I think Tops Nursery, Newport on the Isle of Wight are amazing. I would recommend this nursery to anyone and they put me at total ease when leaving my son as I know he will be in totally safe hands.

The staff are always really approachable and helpful and always answer any queries that I have. I also love Tapestry as it's lovely to receive photos of your child, especially when you are at work - it really brightens up my day.

As I have said I really can't recommend Tops enough.

My son really enjoys nursery, since starting he has learnt so much and is so well cared for there. I like the wide range of activities he does, the friendly staff and the records of what he does. They take good care of him and his special dietary requirements, they never make me feel like anything is too much trouble and show so much care for my son. I would highly recommend to anyone that has use childcare.

Description:

I started with Tops in October 2013. I started off on a 30 hour contract working in all the rooms, I then went on to becoming senior in the baby room just after 2 months. From this I was offered the deputy manager position with the opportunity to be room manager in the Investigators room (two’s). After being in this role a few months an opportunity came up to become manager, I was successful and became manager in June 2014. I hold a Level 6 qualification and studied Early years Childhood Studies (BA Hons) at the University of Chichester of which I graduated in 2012.
