Kids 1st Gosforth are outstanding!

This week staff and children at Kids 1st Gosforth are celebrating after achieving an outstanding report from Ofsted within nine months of opening.

Kids 1st Gosforth, located on Jubilee Road in Fawdon, was judged as outstanding in April at their first Ofsted Inspection. The inspector was particularly impressed with the staff’s understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), their recognition of each child’s unique qualities and interests and the positive relationships that the nursery holds with parents.

Jodie Platt, Nursery Manager at Kids 1st Gosforth, said: “The whole team are overjoyed at this fantastic achievement. The nursery continues to go from strength-to-strength and we are so pleased that our hard work has been recognised.”

Since opening in August 2010 the nursery has become a popular childcare provider for parents living and working in Gosforth. In nine months the nursery has filled 74 of its 108 childcare places, built a strong and highly qualified team of staff and implemented an array of extra-curricular activities, including music and movement lessons.

Mark McArdle, Managing Director of Kids 1st Nurseries is delighted with the inspection report. He said: “We always aim for excellence within every aspect of childcare and to be recognised for that is just fantastic. I am particularly proud of the hard work and commitment that the staff have shown; the nursery couldn’t have achieved so much in such a short space of time without them.”
