Kids 1st named highest quality childcare provider in the UK

This week Kids 1st has been named the highest quality provider of childcare in the UK by Nursery World.

Kids 1st Nurseries has topped a quality league table (High Fliers) which has been published by Nursery Chains, a supplement from Nursery World. The league table has been compiled with points based on their latest published Ofsted inspection reports and it shows that 62.5% of Kids 1st’s nurseries are outstanding.

Mark McArdle, Managing Director said: “I am so proud that we are at the top of this league table. Kids 1st has been in business for over seven years and in that time all of our nurseries have gone from strength to strength; it is fantastic that our hard work and dedication has been recognised by such a well respected publication in the childcare field.”

“As the managing director of Kids 1st I recognise that we wouldn’t be able to offer such a high level of childcare without the passion and support of all of our staff, especially our Head of Childcare, Allison Winship and Area Manager, Kelly Walsh. This quality rating is very much testament to the work of everyone in the Kids 1st team.”

This is the latest in a long line of achievements by Kids 1st; in 2011 alone they have achieved three outstanding Ofsted reports at their Wynyard, Gosforth and Quorum nurseries. In 2009 Kids 1st was named Nursery Chain of the Year by Nursery World.
