Give us your vote – Family Business United Awards

We are delighted to announce that Kids 1st has been shortlisted in the Family Business United Awards and we need your help to win!

Each year Family Business United hold an awards ceremony to celebrate family businesses in the UK and this year Kids 1st has been shortlisted in the North area. The results are to be determined through a combination of a judging panel and an online vote.

Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United, the leading online magazine and resource centre for family firms in the UK, explains, “We are delighted to be able to pull together such a vibrant bunch of family businesses, some that have succeeded for numerous generations and continue to thrive, and others that are relatively young but have great values at the heart of what they do.”

The Chairman of Kids 1st, Helen McArdle, started her business career in 1979 when she founded Helen McArdle Care with her husband and four children. 26 years later Helen McArdle Care is still going strong, as is sister company Kids 1st.  The Managing Director of the nurseries is Mark McArdle, Helen’s son, and Sean, Daniel and Rachael are also senior managers in Catering, Estates and Customer relations.

Mark McArdle said: I am thrilled that we have been recognised in the Family Business Awards as Kids 1st is a real family affair and I include all of our staff in that too.”
