Reviews

9.4 Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.391)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 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 4.81 for Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen is calculated as follows: ( (136 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.81

  • 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 4.581 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen is based on 10 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.581

  • 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 attending Tops since April 2016 and I have to say I can't fault the nursery.
All the staff are really helpful and supportive, they are always there with a welcoming smile and make your children feel relaxed and happy to go, stay and play.
There is an amazing manager who can't do enough for you or your child, and one lady is a nursery nurse in a million.
My son has flourished while attending the nursery and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Choosing Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen, was one of the best decisions I have made with reference to the care of my two children. There is no bigger responsibility than choosing the right nursery for the most precious things in your life, but Tops have been amazing from day one. Nursery is their first place in their little lives of independence. Knowing they feel secure and happy there is worth every single penny, the hours the nursery offer fit in with most busy lifestyles and it's clear to see from all the staff their jobs aren't 'just' jobs but vocations. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Tops Day Nursery to anyone!!

Immy Gunputh, Nursery Manager at Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen responded to this review on 22 Jun 2017:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It is so nice to know that you think highly of us.

I always feel very comfortable to leave my son at nursery, he appears to have a great time there. The nursery has a wide selection of toys and activities as well as a great outside play area, so its great to know that your child isn't just sat inside a room all day. I would highly recommend the nursery to anyone. The feedback you get via the app is great. It brightens my day when I get to read about the fun he had at nursery that day.

Our children always love going to Tops Day Nursery during their school breaks and this is kudos to the staff and people who work at the nursery and make it so welcoming when our girls attend. I have always found the nursery very clean, with plenty of lovely staff and lots of things for our girls to do when they are there. The other reason we book is because the list of 'in-house' and 'out-house' topics and excursions are amazing and so reasonable priced!!
We will be continuing to use Tops Day Nursery/Mini-Beasts for the long term foreseeable future and will continue to recommend the nursery to our family and friends.

I have recently enrolled my 12-month-old son at Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen and I could not be more pleased with our experience. Each member of staff has been amazing and have allowed us to take our time to settle in gradually. No question has been too small and they always have time for you. The staff have been tentative, nurturing and caring not just to my son but to me his mum during this transition of settling in. I feel very confident in them and am so pleased with our choice.

My working hours are not 9 to 5. I teach fitness classes all over Poole and Bournemouth and when my son turned one, I took back a lot of my classes but needed a weird childcare timetable. Tops were able to offer me flexible childcare which could change from time to time.
From Day one my son loved it, loved climbing their frames and blocks. Now he can't wait to get through the door Blowing everyone kisses and high fives.

A very friendly nursery with consistent staff and a warm and fun atmosphere. The children partake in a number of activities and my son loves the forest school that they run. It is flexible with hours and nothing is ever too much trouble.

Tops Corfe Mullen is an incredibly friendly and happy nursery. My daughter has attended since she was 8 months old (she is now 4!) and loves the nursery. The key workers know their children really well and can identify things that they need to work on and work with them to ensure that they are confident and capable.
The nursery itself is light and bright and all children are happy to be there. The large garden is a fantastic space for the children to play in and the kids love being out there. Tops also have activities such as Forest School, which I feel is really beneficial for the children. My daughter loves Forest School days and gets a kick out of being surrounded by nature.
Overall, I would recommend Tops Corfe Mullen to anyone. The nursery is big enough to matter, yet small enough to ensure that every child gets the attention that they require.

Immy Gunputh, Nursery Manager at Tops Day Nursery - Corfe Mullen responded to this review on 03 Feb 2017:

That is lovely to hear. Thank you so much.

My 14 month daughter enjoys going to nursery, playing with all the different toys, singing and all her needs are catered for. The staff are excellent with her and provide her with that reassurance and 'Mum' care that I can't give when at work. I also enjoy the e log system of emails sent telling me what she has been up to during the day.

Really lovely nursery, have always felt confident that my daughter will be well cared for and will do fun and educational activities throughout the day. The best part is that she loves going there! I also love the eylog communication, it really brightens my day when I get a notification through of something she's done that day.

Nursery are absolutely fabulous in supporting my child with additional needs. All staff go way above and beyond the call of duty in the daily care of my son. Wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend. The facilities are fantastic and the outside space is far better than many other nurseries in the area.

Description:

I started Tops in 2014 in the role of a Deputy Manager at Tops Parkstone whilst also completing my BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies. I was exceptionally proud being a part of the Ofsted experience at Tops Parkstone, especially when we got Outstanding. Having successfully completed my degree I then took it upon myself to further my qualifications and experience by doing the Level 3 Leadership and Management through Aspire.

I was promoted and transferred to Tops Corfe Mullen in November 2016 as the role of Nursery Manager. I had my first Ofsted experience within 3 months of joining and I was so proud to announce that we got a Good! I am extremely proud of my Nursery and how far it has come along since I have taken over. I am so fortunate to have such a hard-working and dedicated staff team who continually go above and beyond to provide innovative experiences for our children.
