A GOOD Result for Tops Day Nurseries Gillingham

Staff and Children at Tops Gillingham, at Middlefield House on Marlott Road, are pleased to be celebrating a GOOD rating from Ofsted following their recent inspection.
Tops Gillingham Day Nursery & Preschool is dedicated to offering a high standard of Early Education and Care for all children. The setting takes pride in cultivating a safe, secure, and family-cantered environment, reflecting its commitment to excellence.
According to the Ofsted report, “Warm and friendly staff greet children and parents as they arrive. Children quickly settle and are eager to explore the thoughtfully planned activities staff provide. Children form strong relationships with staff and demonstrate they feel safe and secure in their environment. For example, babies giggle and smile as they eat morning snack together”.
The report also noted that; “Children have excellent knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy. For example, older children talk about which foods are good for them and what sugar does to their teeth. Staff teach children about oral hygiene and support children to brush their teeth every day. Staff encourage children to be active throughout the day and help them understand the effect of exercise on their bodies”.
The inspector said, “Children are very independent. They pour themselves drinks of water from water stations and use mirrors and tissues to wipe their noses. Staff work closely with parents to support children to become toilet trained. They provide motivating toys and books for parents to help their children with this process at home”.
“Parents speak very positively about the range of activities staff provide and the good progress their children make. They comment on staff being friendly and approachable. Parents appreciate the advice, guidance and resources staff provide to help them support children’s learning at home. Staff have good relationships with local schools and work closely with them and parents to ensure children have a successful transition to school”.
Natasha Holgate, Nursery Manager at Tops Gillingham said “I couldn’t be happier about our fantastic Ofsted report. I’m incredibly proud of our team for their ongoing hard work in giving the best care to the children in our nursery. Their dedication ensures that every child receives exceptional care and attention. Together, we’re creating a nurturing space where all children can grow and succeed”.
