Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Monday 30 September 2013 by Lynsey Martin (Parent)

Kids 1st provides excellent childcare, my son has just moved onto school and sadly misses nursery but is looking forward to returning in the holidays. The staff are friendly and professional, there is a wide range of activities which are creative, educational and above all fun. Children are in rooms, with outdoor areas appropriate to their age and development with plenty of toys and games appropriate to their needs. The meals are varied and healthy and the menus change each term. Excellent nursery, would highly recommend.

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Monday 30 September 2013 by Jane Laidlaw (Mother of a 2 year old boy)

We love Kids 1st Wansbeck - we could not fault it in any way. We were happy from the second we walked in to view the nursery and have not been let down. The staff are professional and provide love and stimulation all day long. They provide advice and give this in the nicest way possible. Our son loves nursery. We could not provide the diverse range of activities and food for the nursery fees. Kids 1st is outstanding. Thank you for all you do.

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Tuesday 27 August 2013 by Vicky Halliday (Mother of twins - boy and girl)

Kids 1st Wansbeck has been an excellent child care provider for my twin boy and girl. They always look forward to their visit. It has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The staff are all very kind and friendly. They are very professional and very caring towards the children. They provide the children with all the educational needs. I cannot fault Kids 1st and will be very sad when my children no longer attend.

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Friday 16 August 2013 by Rachel Redshaw (Parent)

This is by far the best nursery I have ever been to. I have two children at the nursery, my oldest has been there since 6 months old and is due to leave for school in 3 weeks. She loves going to nursery...the staff build a special rapport with all of the children, they are very accommodating of your wishes as a parent and the children are very happy. Kids First is both professional and caring. The development of my children through the activities they are involved in is impressive and the variety keeps them stimulated. I recommend this nursery to everyone I meet with children - there really is no comparison!

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Monday 12 August 2013 by Catherine in Guidepost (Parent)

Kids First Wansbeck is a fantastic nursery, it is clean, well lit, full of great toys, smells nice, friendly, welcoming and secure. The girls are always polite and pleased to see all of the children. In my opinion there is no other establishment in the area that measures up to this child care facility, i've visited most and even started out with a competitor, but having picked my child up on a few occasions with dried out pooh on their bottom and tears, I took the hard decision to move on. Apologies to my litte one for not doing it sooner! I would 100% recommend Kids First Wansbeck and have never heard anyone have a single gripe against them.

My daughter has gone to kids 1st since she was 6 months old, she is so happy there and I feel confident that she is safe and happy. The staff go out of their way to help in any way they can and really respect each childs individuality. I can go to work knowing that my child is getting the best care and she is coming on in leaps and bounds.

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Friday 9 August 2013 by john cowell (parent)

kids 1st Wansbeck is a lovely well presented nursery, which has looked after my daughter since she was six month old. The staff are very friendly and management are fully approachable. The nursery provides a wide of activities and educational activities for my daughter. She has progressed so much from when she was in babies, to now being in dolphin class. Well nutritious food is always provided and healthy snacks. I love the idea of every child having a keyworker which I can talk to on a regular basis, and knows my daughter really well. I would recommend this nursery to all other parents. My daughter loves going x

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Thursday 8 August 2013 by Clare Bland (Parent)

I am extremely happy with kids first Wansbeck, my son has been attending for nearly two years and my second son is about to start. The staff are friendly and helpful, and have been fantastic with my son. He loves going to nursery and always comes away smiling and full of stories of his day. I believe kids first has helped him learn to socialise and helped with language development among many other factors. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this nursery to anyone!

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck on Thursday 8 August 2013 by Amanda Richards (Parent of 3 year old girl)

My 3 year old girl has attended kids 1st since she was 6 months old. The staff are very friendly and always approachable. Everyone is very caring and has a person centred approach to every child that attends. There are plenty of educational activities for all children to do of all ages. The food is well nutritious and menus are provided to all families to look at. Samples off the menu can also be sampled at parents evening. Kids 1st keep a daily diary and progress reports to show you your child's progress. It's a lovely atmosphere and well presented nursery which is a pleasure to take my child to. I wouldn't send my daughter any where else and would recommend the nursery to all other parents. Thanks to everyone within Kids 1st Wansbeck.

Warm, welcoming environment with lovely staff who are always friendly and happy. My daughter gets very excited to come on nursery days and has a lovely bond with her key person. Management are very approachable, friendly and accommodating and seem to know the names of every child in their care!. The menu is fantastic, lots of varied choices and healthy snacks which parents get to sample on parents evenings. I would not send my child anywhere else.
