A nursery provider with two facilities in North Tyneside is celebrating after its latest ‘outstanding’ rating.

Nursery group Kids 1st has secured the top rating from Ofsted for all ten of its nurseries following the latest inspection of Kids 1st Hexham.

Kids 1st opened its first nursery in Rake Lane, North Shields, in 2004 and also has a facility on Quorum Business Park in Longbenton.

Mark McArdle, managing director, said: “I am so proud of everything that we have accomplished over the last 11 years but to be able to say that all ten of our nurseries are outstanding is very special and quite unique within the industry.

“It is extremely difficult to achieve an outstanding Ofsted report and we know we couldn’t achieve them without the hard work and dedication of every single member of staff.

“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to them for being part of the Kids 1st family.”
