Kids 1st nursery group has been named the highest quality provider of childcare in the UK by Nursery World for the fourth consecutive year
Kids 1st Nurseries has topped the quality league table, which has been compiled with points based on their latest published Ofsted inspection reports and it shows that 66.6% of Kids 1st’s nurseries are outstanding!
Mark McArdle, Managing Director said: “I am so proud that we are at the top of this league table for the fourth year. It was very special to achieve this once, but four times is incredible. This is a great accolade to celebrate in our tenth anniversary year and it is a very important award to us as it is based solely on our Ofsted inspections.
I am a firm believer that we are only as good as our staff and this quality rating is very much testament to the commitment, dedication and qualifications of the staff team, and the team spirit within the group.”
This year Kids 1st is celebrating 10 years in business and this award is the latest in a long line of achievements for the group. Over the years the nurseries have achieved nine outstanding Ofsted reports, have featured in the top ten nurseries in the North East on daynurseries.co.uk and in 2009 Kids 1st was named Nursery Chain of the Year by Nursery World.
Kids 1st is a family run business with ten purpose-built nurseries in the North East of England. Outstanding features of the nurseries include nutritious homemade meals, challenging gardens which have been designed to suit the age groups that use them, CCTV and fingerprint security, interactive whiteboards and modern language and dance classes.
Quorum Development Director, Fergus Trim is delighted with the news “here at Quorum we pride ourselves on delivering best in class amenities and facilities to our staff, having an onsite nursery is an important feature within that and we are very proud that Kids 1st has continued to thrive”
