New Nursery Manager announced for Kids 1st QE

We are delighted to announce that Lizzie Dickson, currently the Deputy Manager at Kids 1st Low Fell, will be heading up our eleventh nursery at the QE Hospital in Gateshead.

The new 108 place, purpose-built nursery, is currently being constructed by Walter Thompson  and is due to be completed in November. Childcare places are available to all but the nursery will also have spaces allocated to Gateshead NHS Trust staff.

Lizzie, who has worked at Kids 1st for over five years, is delighted to have been selected for the role of Nursery Manager at Kids 1st QE: “I can’t wait to open the nursery in November and to get to know all of the families that have already booked places with us.  I will be, of course, sad to leave the team at Kids 1st Low Fell but I am sure we will work closely together as sister nurseries. I am so proud to have been offered this fantastic opportunity.”

Allison Winship, Head of Childcare, is very proud of Lizzie’s achievements over the last five years and has been a mentor to Lizzie throughout her childcare career: “It is wonderful to see our staff develop and many of our managers, like Lizzie, have worked their way up from Nursery Assistants to Managers throughout their time at Kids 1st. Lizzie has deputised at Low Fell for many years now and will make a wonderful Manager, I look forward to see her progress in her new role.”

Later this week read our ‘Spotlight on Lizzie’ to find out more about the nursery’s new Nursery Manager and her plans for the future.
