Tops Day Nurseries, with a nursery onsite at the Salisbury District Hospital, is proud to announce that all of its nurseries have achieved accreditation from SchemaPlay, a Community Interest Company.
Accreditation involves a rigorous assessment process, which evaluates the quality of teaching, the level of understanding of children’s play patterns, and the effectiveness of the curriculum in supporting children’s learning and development.
Tops Day Nurseries has been committed to providing high-quality early years education and care for over 30 years, and achieving SchemaPlay accreditation is a testament to the hard work and dedication of its staff.
The accreditation also reinforces the nurseries’ focus on child-led learning, where children are encouraged to explore and learn through play, and staff work collaboratively with parents to ensure every child’s individual needs are met.
Paula Phillips, director of quality and audit, said: “Gaining SchemaPlay Accreditation is a huge achievement for all our Tops settings. I am very proud of everyone who has been on this journey, it is making such a difference to the children at nursery.
“It is a real skill for a practitioner to be an effective observer, really tuning into what the children are interested in finding out, whilst also identifying what they ‘can-do’.
“Through successfully completing a case study for their SchemaPlay submission, the staff have proved they understand what it is children are investigating, and how to support these young enquiring minds to find out more”.
Lynnette Brock, co-Founder and director of SchemaPlay Community Interest Company said: “Reaching SchemaPlay accreditation by the whole of the Tops Day Nursery team is a huge achievement.
“It demonstrates their long-term commitment to professional development in this pedagogy and their dedication to providing children with the best possible start in life through their Early Education and Care.”
Tops Day Nurseries provides eco-sustainable Early Education and Care for children aged from three months to school age. It has over 30-day nurseries across the south and south west, including Tops Salisbury, onsite at the Salisbury District Hospital.
Tops also offers before, after-school and Hi5 holiday clubs for children up to the age of 11. It has also recently launched a Hi5’s Forest School, a way for children to have fun and learn whilst being outside.
