Reviews

9.5 Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.457)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth 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 30 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 19 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 4.732 for Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth is calculated as follows: ( (267 Excellents x 5) + (86 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 358 Ratings = 4.732

  • 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 4.725 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth is based on 19 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 26.2 positive Reviews (131 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 26.2 Target = 0.725

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

The staff are always warm and friendly and appear to show a genuine interest in my daughters progress whilst attending Tops Day Nursery. They are quick and efficient at addressing any concerns I may have as a parent with regards to my daughters learning or social/physical development. They are great at communicating my child's personal achievements and milestones through face to face contact or through the eyLog notifications online. I have no hesitation about leaving my daughter with staff who appear motivated and capable of making it a safe and happy environment for her to play in. I cannot thank them enough for their ongoing help and support.

We have used Tops Bournemouth for 3 years now and couldn't be happier. The staff are extremely helpful and great with our little boy. Our 6 month old is on the list to attend when I go back to work. Being at Tops has taught our little one to be confident and play well with others. The educational side is amazing too, with animal life cycles and how to look after the planet.
Thank you Tops Bournemouth

Since joining Tops Day Nursery my son has developed in so many ways. He is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going into nursery everyday.
I think the best thing about Tops Day Nursery is the staff. They are friendly, welcoming, willing to answer any questions. I feel confident and happy leaving my son with them.
I love that I get to see photos of what my son is up to, often making something fun.
Such a fantastic nursery, would highly recommend it.

We have found Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth to be an excellent nursery for our son. The staff give good feedback about how our son has been. Telling us what and when he has eaten along with nappies etc. The nursery helps him with his development via the EYFS. All of the staff are friendly and clearly care about the children in their care. We would have no problem recommending Tops.

My son has been going to Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth since he was 8 months old, and has loved every minute. The staff are exceptional, the food is healthy and varied, and I am certain his development, speech and attitude is a direct reflection of their guidance.
I have had to use their services in emergencies too and they are always willing to help, no matter how short notice.
I cannot review them highly enough.

Tops Day Nursery have been excellent for us and our little boy, the flexibility is unparalleled and the staff have been exemplary in helping us to arrange late day care in exceptional circumstances, always going the extra mile to help out. They really care for their children, and the staff are always happy to listen to us and have a two-way relationship, especially when things are not quite going to plan. They always have advice and are quick to try to rectify any problems that may arise. Most importantly, my son, who is a bit shy, seems to have an absolutely great time there and has made friends with staff and other children alike, and often surprises us at home with things he has picked up from nursery. They are also really proactive on extra-curricular activities, with visits to the beach on the bus for example! Excellent.

Great work pre-school 2. Thank you.

This nursery has been great and our little boy looks as though he has enjoyed it. The staff are all excellent and update a personal online file for your child, informing you of everything that your child has done during their time at nursery. This even includes a few sneaky photos of them playing and sometimes getting messy. I would highly recommend Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth.

My daughter has been attending Tops Bournemouth since September 2015 she absolutely loves it and don't doubt it is because of the nurturing environment
She has had the opportunity to attend a forest school and has loved exploring nature and muddy puddles!
All of the staff I have met are lovely and child-focused
I can't recommend tops highly enough.

The added extras such as forest school, cooking school are run very professionally, and are an extra bonus to my little girls day at nursery which she has so much fun, as well as learning too!

I'd highly recommend Tops Nursery to my friends and family. My son has been going there since he was 11-months-old (he is now 2) and has always enjoyed it. The staff are very friendly with parents and kids, responsible and well trained. I wouldn't leave my child with anyone if not feeling entirely reassured. He's treated well, taken care of and well fed. They have bilingual staff which helps my son development in English as well as in Spanish which is our mother tongue. Food is good and flexible hours are very useful when both parents work. All in all an excellent nursery, very happy with it!

My son has been going to Tops Day Nursery - Bournemouth for a couple of months now. I had a slight issue at first when my child would not settle into his class. However, after a very helpful and quick response, he was then moved. He has settled very well to the point where he runs in and can't wait to get rid of me quick enough which I love to see. He is always so happy when I arrive to pick him up! The nursery always communicates with me and lets me know what he has done throughout the day, eaten, nappy changes etc. Whenever I call to see if he is OK, they are straight on the phone and always so positive. They always keep me updated on the app with pictures etc! My son loves the staff and other children and they love him too! I have already recommended this nursery to so many of my friends! Great people, great atmosphere and we are so glad we picked this nursery over others we looked at. We feel welcomed and at home! Thank you, guys!

Our daughter is only 18-month-old and absolutely loves the staff and her key worker at Tops Day Nursery.
She enjoys the interaction and is learning fast. The staff are great at keeping us informed about her development which we watch with delight on the Tops website.
Our son who is almost 5 attended a different day nursery and I wish now we had sent him to Tops as well. Tops is much better in every single way, where the other nursery lacked communication with parents and enthusiasm with their children, Tops excels in those areas.
Its hard as a parent trying to find the best nursery for your baby, and then the last thing you want to do is move them once your baby is settled if you don't feel the nursery is living up to expectations.
With Tops, you won't have that issue.
Tops is a great Nursery, I wish we had used it before.

My daughter has been attending Tops since December and I am extremely pleased with the progress she has already. I couldn't recommend this nursery highly enough, the staff are extremely friendly and keep us updated with regular progress notifications with is fantastic. Before being at tops my daughter attended another preschool and in comparison there is no competition. She is thriving very well at tops and is excited to go every time. I have no bad word to say about the nursery and would encourage anyone to consider it.

My son has now been in two rooms. 1. The nest and 2. Explorers. I have found the stag in both the rooms patient, kind, vigilant and very loving with the children.

The rooms in themselves have so much to occupy the little children. It is a safe environment for the child to explore and learn.

The online tracker and constantly added observations help me as a parent to know and feel confident that my baby is happy where he is and playing and learning and enjoying with his new little friends.

My daughter has been using Tops Day nurseries since the age of 6 months, first at Portsmouth and this year at Bournemouth. The attention and care she has received has been excellent. I have watched her develop her own personality and realise how much of an influence her key workers at Tops have had on her. I would also like to use this opportunity to mention the Investigators who have been absolutely wonderful with my child. The extra activities offered such as Forest school, cooking classes etc have all been enjoyable and educative. The administrative staff have also been excellent and are always willing to help out with booking extra time at short notice. The flexibility offered by 15 minute slots and variable booking have been especially useful and truly not to be found anywhere else!

I cannot praise Tops highly enough. My little boy has been in both The Nest and Explorers 2 over the last year; both were filled with fantastic staff. Every day I receive a full update about what my son has done - food, nappies, milk, sleep. All of this is online but it doesn't stop the staff adding lots more information when he's collected. I also receive regular online observations - I love seeing photos and anecdotes of what he's been doing while I've been at work. Tops is extremely flexible and has always been able to accommodate the hours I need, even at short notice when my other child care has been ill. There is lots of interaction and each room really takes the needs of the children into consideration. As I said, I cannot praise it enough and will continue to send my son here.

Would recommend this nursery for definite.
Couldn't be more happier with my child, always an event ie cooking or dancing that my child wants to get involved with, never known a nursery to do half of these, very pleased. Progress thanks to Tops. A****

I would wholeheartedly recommend Tops Bournemouth to anyone looking for a nursery who truly cares about their child on every level. Since starting at Tops Bournemouth over half a year ago, my son now runs to get there where before he would cling to the car seat! He is made to feel truly cared about and loved by his personal carer, whom he adores. He's not just "looked after" when he's there - they've helped him with his speech, and his confidence when apart from family, which has proved invaluable, and they care about him as a little individual not just another child to have to watch over. As such, when he walks through the door and if he's upset, they know just what to do to help him. It's really helped set our minds at complete ease having him somewhere he's honestly cared about. The outside play area is a godsend too (spacious, with good play equipment etc) - he's an outdoors little boy so we also needed somewhere with a good play area for him and other nurseries in the area seemed very cramped. Here he can run around safely, play in the sandpit, ride a tricycle and so forth. It's great!

Bournemouth Tops at RBH is fantastic !! Having worked in a nursery previously, I was after a warm and friendly setting for my children. They have looked after my 5 year old for 2 years before he started school and we had no doubts about sending our daughter here when I went back to work after maternity leave.
All the girls (and boys) do a fantastic job.... From the office staff to the chef and all the girls (and boys) in each of the rooms.
Our daughter loves going in each week and we appreciate all the hard work and effort that goes into such a fantastically run nursery. Keep up the good work guys
Thank you all xxx

I would highly recommend Tops Nursery Bournemouth to Anyone. I feel completely relaxed to know that my son is in the caring hands of the fantastic, friendly staff here!!
My son has a close bond with his carers within the nursery which I feel is wonderful. It is clear that each individual child is cared for and loved for who they are.
He has come so far with his talking and singing and that really is with great input from the lovely ladies who look after him twice a week. He is a happy little soul and especially happy being here, a I am happy that he is so happy!
Thank you Tops for making this experience such an enjoyable one for my little boy and a completely stress free experience for us as parents. It is an emotional time leaving your first child in the care of someone else when you have to go back to work, Tops made this process as straightforward and stress free as possible.

What a fantastic nursery! Myself and my daughter have been made to feel so welcome here. She is in the Nest and all of the staff are very friendly and helpful. My daughter enjoys her time here as I can tell from the picture and diary they use to keep you involved in your child's day. The staff here really do bend over backwards to help. I often have last minute changes to my work hours and I have never been refused changes to my booked hours. So please we chose to come here. All the staff and activities have greatly helped towards her development.
