Judged by Ofsted in September 2019 as 'OUTSTANDING IN ALL AREAS AGAIN' for over 10 consecutive years! 

Top Tots Nursery provides an 'OUTSTANDING' nurturing and caring environment for children aged from 3 months up to 5 years old.

Ofsted said ''Children flourish at this exemplary nursery setting and have extensive opportunities to learn and develop in a safe and caring environment. Leaders and staff carefully create and plan a high-quality curriculum. Children are highly motivated and eager to join in with activities, demonstrating their excitement to learn. Younger children explore with confidence and select resources independently. The children have excellent behaviour because the staff are excellent role models. The staff support the children to value and respect their friends and toys, and they encourage superb manners. All children are incredibly well prepared for their next stages in learning, due to the exceptionally high quality of teaching across the nursery. Staff have extensive knowledge about child development and are supported effectively by the passionate leadership team. Partnerships with parents are exemplary, and the nursery works hard to achieve excellent relationships with families. Parents speak highly of the nursery and are incredibly impressed with the service provided, and the wonderful progress that their children are making.''
