Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck

My little boy has attended full time for 6 months and they have helped him progress in leaps and bounds. The varied stimulating activities mean he is never bored and is always engaged. The staff are kind patient and loving with all the kids and it is a very happy place indeed. The meals are healthy varied and are of excellent quality and my son who was a very picky eater continues to eat more balanced diet and is now happy to experiment with new foods. We are very happy with Kids 1st.

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck

Fabulous place!
So pleased I got my son a place at Kids First. He started here at 10 months old and loved it straight away. He learns so much and has gained such confidence in himself. You are kept well up to date with all the activities he's been up to and photos are taken regularly which is lovely to see on parents evenings how well he's doing. Can not recommend this nursery enough it is great.

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck

Kids 1st Wansbeck have been fantastic in all areas with regards to care for my daughter. Additionally they have gone above and beyond what is expected of them in helping my daughter with her physical inabilities/problems (hyper mobile joints so trouble with walking) and have gone to great lengths in helping her with this physically and emotionally. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to any parent.

My husband and I cannot fault this nursery. Our daughter is happy, well cared for and safe in the hands of very professional, caring and friendly staff. All the staff in the nursery know her and call her by name. There is plenty of outdoor space to play and she is given plenty of opportunity to use it. A lot of attention is given to developmental milestones. Our daughter is encouraged to learn, explore, and become independent. We highly recommend it.

Review of Kids 1st Wansbeck

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.
