It’s official – Kids 1st Bowesfield is outstanding!

This week staff and children at Kids 1st Bowesfield in Stockton are celebrating after achieving an outstanding Ofsted report within 10 months of opening.

The nursery was judged as outstanding in every category and has been given a huge amount of positive feedback from Ofsted. Inspector, Eileen Grimes, was particularly impressed with the enthusiasm of the staff and their aspirations for the children, the quality of teaching and the effectiveness of the leadership and management in the nursery.

Jodie Platt, Nursery Manager at Kids 1st Bowesfield is thrilled with the nursery’s achievement, she said: “We have had a great first year and it has been a delight to see the children develop and form relationships with each other and with staff.  All of my team work so hard to ensure that we provide the very best for the children and we are all delighted that this has been recognised as outstanding!”

Earlier in the spring, Kids 1st Bowesfield was named the eighth recommended nursery in the whole of the North East by as recommended by parents.

Allison Winship, Head of Childcare, said: “This is a great achievement for the team at Bowesfield; it is very difficult to achieve an outstanding, especially for a new nursery and I would like to thank the staff for their commitment to providing the highest quality of care and education.”

This outstanding Ofsted report is the thirteenth for Kids 1st, who were named the ‘Highest Quality Childcare Provider in the UK’ by Nursery World for the fourth consecutive year at the end of 2014.
