Kids 1st QE is Outstanding

We are celebrating after receiving our eleventh outstanding Ofsted report.

Kids 1st QE, based in the grounds of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead, was judged as outstanding in every category in their first inspection.

Kids 1st QE opened in November 2015 and provides childcare to staff at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and members of the general public. Kids 1st QE received a huge amount of positive feedback. Inspector Katie Sparrow was particularly impressed with the ‘quality of teaching, learning and assessment’ stating that, “Staff are highly skilled at following children’s play ideas and maximizing opportunities for learning.”

Nursery Manger, Lizzie Dickson was thrilled with the achievement, “We are all over the moon with this result. All of my staff members work extremely hard to provide outstanding care to the children who we look after, so it is lovely for this to be recognised by Ofsted.”

The success at Kids 1st QE is the latest outstanding result which we have been awarded at Kids 1st. All eleven Kids 1st nurseries which have been inspected by Ofsted have achieved an outstanding report, with two nurseries yet to be inspected.
