Getting to know Jodie

As some of you may know, we are opening our tenth nursery this summer and we are delighted to announce that Jodie Platt, who successfully managed Kids 1st Gosforth has been appointed as the new manager. In this post you can find out about a little bit more about Jodie and her plans for the new nursery.


1. What are your plans for the new nursery?
I can’t wait to set the nursery up; I love to create exciting and stimulating environments for the children. We are extremely lucky at Kids 1st to have access to wonderful equipment and facilities and I am very excited to see it come together.

2. What is your experience in childcare?
I have worked for over 14 years in childcare, six of which have been at Kids 1st. My four years as the Nursery Manager at Kids 1st Gosforth was a great experience and I am ready to build and extend upon that at Bowesfield.

3. What is your favourite room in the nursery?
All of it; the whole nursery will be absolutely stunning but I would have to say that the plans for the dining room are my favourite. Mealtimes are a great time for children to practice their self-care skills and table manners, and I am certain our dedicated dining room and delicious, home-cooked food will help to encourage that.

Kids 1st Bowesfield is opening this July, if you need any further information please call: 0191 461 8877
Open Day Saturday 26 July between 12pm – 2pm
