Why You'll Love Kids First
Great Staff
We recognise that it is our staff members that make us successful and that to offer the very best care and education we must continually involve our team in our vision.

We recognise that the childcare in our nurseries isn’t down to individuals but the team as a whole; each member of staff has their own roles and responsibilities which provides a synergistic effect. Each nursery is run by an experienced Nursery Manager who is supported by strong senior staff and a team of dedicated professionals.

All of our nurseries adhere to Ofsted Safeguarding and Welfare requirements with regard to staff:child ratios. Each Kids 1st Nursery has their own dedicated Chef and Housekeeper. At Kids 1st we operate a key person system where each child is assigned a special person who is responsible for their wellbeing, observation, assessment and planning.

We operate a robust recruitment procedure and insist that all staff are required to have a Disclosure and Barring Service check and two satisfactory references before their appointment is confirmed. All new staff must then complete a mandatory induction period to enable them to fully understand their role, to familiarise themselves with our policies and procedures and with the daily routines of the nursery. Ongoing supervision and training is arranged to ensure staff are fully equipped to carry out their role effectively. An annual appraisal system is in place to give staff clear objectives and the opportunity to develop both personally and professionally.
