Outstanding childcare!

This week staff and children at Kids 1st Gosforth are celebrating after achieving an outstanding Ofsted report for the second time!

Kids 1st Gosforth, located on Jubilee Road in Fawdon, was judged as outstanding by the new inspection format from Ofsted and has been given a huge amount of positive feedback from Ofsted. Inspector Laura Hoyland said:

“Staff have exceptional knowledge and understanding about how children learn and develop. They plan stimulating and exciting activities that motivate children to learn and consequently make consistently excellent progress in their development.”

Carly Wilkinson, Nursery Manager at Kids 1st Gosforth, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the whole staff team. We all work so hard to ensure that we provide our children with the highest quality of care and education and we are thrilled that it has been recognised by Ofsted.”

Since opening in 2011 the nursery has become extremely popular with parents in the area and those that work in Gosforth and Newcastle.  Features of the nursery include nutritious homemade meals, CCTV and fingerprint security, spacious outdoor gardens, music and movement lessons and a coffee-to- go breakfast service for parents.

Mark McArdle, Managing Director, is delighter with Kids 1st’s ninth outstanding inspection. He said: “Next year is Kids 1st’s tenth birthday and what better way to celebrate than with our ninth outstanding inspection.  Our purpose-built nurseries are specially designed and equipped for the care of young children but without the commitment of all of the staff and the continuous support of the parents, we wouldn’t be able to achieve such high standards.”

Congratulations Gosforth from everyone at Kids 1st!
