Families Enjoy Kids 1st Ashbrooke Open Day

Legendary Sunderland player Kevin Ball went along to Kids 1st Ashbrooke on Friday 13 February to celebrate the opening of our twelfth nursery.

Kevin, who played over 350 games for the Black Cats, was very impressed with the purpose built nursery and its range of facilities including the separate dining room and large enclosed gardens.

Local business people, residents and professionals joined Kevin for a tour of the nursery on the Friday, while the following day the building was open to the public. Over 36 families welcomed the opportunity to view the bright spacious rooms and beautiful outdoor play areas while the children had fun meeting the SAFC Mascots, Samson and Delilah.

Kelly Walsh, Senior Area Manager at Kids 1st, said: “We are delighted to have opened our twelfth nursery in Sunderland in our twelfth year in business!  Sunderland is particularly special to us as we have been looking for a location to build here for a while. We have already made links with local organisations, including the Foundation of Light, and are thrilled to be part of the City of Sunderland.”

Experienced Nursery Manager Tracey Winter will be heading up the nursery. Tracey, who has worked at Kids 1st since 2006 and has been manager at Kids 1st Wynyard for five years, is delighted to have been selected for the role. “I am looking forward to getting to know all of the families that have already booked places with us,” she said. “I am so proud to have been offered this fantastic opportunity.”

Located on Gorse Road, the nursery has 108 places to provide childcare for children aged three months to five years.
