Kids 1st Gosforth Now Open

Kids 1st Gosforth opened its doors to the public for the very first time on Saturday 14 August and invited parents to take a look around the new purpose-built facility. The nursery, which is managed by Vikki Greggs, an experienced childcare professional, has 108 full time places, and nearly half of these are already booked.

Allison Winship, Head of Childcare at Kids 1st, is thrilled that the nursery has already been so successful. She said: “In the run up to the nursery opening we had taken over 50 bookings and after this weekend this has increased even further.”


“At Kids 1st we invest a lot of time and money into each of the nurseries we build and operate, however we wouldn’t be able to offer such high quality childcare without the enthusiasm, passion and commitment of all of the staff. Opening a new nursery really is a team effort and I am proud to say that we have a fantastic team in place at Gosforth.”

The Ofsted registered nursery is split into rooms depending on age group and level of development. Each room leads to an enclosed garden, where the children can get as much fresh air and exercise as desired. Outstanding features of the nursery include an onsite chef to prepare homemade nutritious meals and fingerprint entry system to ensure that the highest  level of security.

Vikki Greggs, Nursery Manager, said: “ It was great to meet so many of the families who will be starting at the nursery over the coming weeks. It has been really hard work to get the nursery ready in time but it is worth it when you see how excited the children are to get started with us.”
