Kids 1st Wynyard achieves second outstanding!

Teaching was described as ‘exceptional’ at Kids 1st Wynyard when they achieved their second successive outstanding Ofsted inspection.

Kids 1st Wynyard, located in Wynyard Business Park, Billingham, was judged as outstanding in every category and has been given a huge amount of positive feedback from Ofsted. Inspector, Kerry Holder, was particularly impressed with the teaching at the nursery and the support that the staff offer children when they take on new challenges, parent partnerships and the leadership and management of the nursery.

Tracey Winter, Nursery Manager at Kids 1st Wynyard is thrilled with the nursery’s achievement, she said: “All of my team have worked so hard for this inspection and we are delighted to retain our outstanding! We always aim for excellence within every aspect of childcare and to receive recognition of that is wonderful.”

This outstanding Ofsted report is the seventeenth in eleven years for Kids 1st and currently all ten of the group’s nurseries are outstanding, something quite unique in the private childcare sector.

Allison Winship, Head of Childcare, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Tracey and the team at Kids 1st Wynyard for all of their hard work and dedication to the nursery. Achieving an outstanding Ofsted report is extremely difficult, especially twice, and to see how much the teaching skills and expertise of the staff have impressed the inspector really makes me proud.”

At the end of 2014 Kids 1st was named the ‘Highest Quality Childcare Provider in the UK’ by Nursery World for the fourth consecutive year. This year’s top provider will be announced by the industry publication in November.
