A Newport nursery has been recognised as one of the best in the South.

Tops Day Nursery, based at the Isle of Wight College, have been awarded the South’s Nursery of the Year award.

The very best of the nursery sector was celebrated at the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) Awards in last month (June).

The NDNA’s prestigious nursery awards acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across the nursery sector, highlighting the fantastic work of nurseries and practitioners in supporting over one million children and their families.

An expert judging panel took into account testimonies from families whose children attend nurseries, making the awards the true ‘parents’ choice’.

Hannah Jennings, Nursery Manager, said:

“I am so proud of my team, they are all amazing! Being awarded the title of Nursery of the Year South is such a privilege and we are all delighted to have been recognised for all of our hard work.”

Tops Newport will be continuing the celebrations during a garden party open evening, where local businesses and families within the community can look around the Ofsted ‘outstanding’, award winning nursery.

It will be held on 9 September from 5pm.
