Incredible 4 ‘Top 20’ Placings for Children 1st

We’re delighted to share the great news that three of our nurseries have been listed amongst the ‘Top 20 Most Recommended Nurseries’ in the East Midlands according to leading peer review site

This year, the prestigious accolade goes to our Main Street, Newark and Toton nurseries. Special congratulations to our Main Street nursery who have featured in the ‘Top 20′ since the awards started. Both Main Street and Newark have scored a perfect 10 out of 10!

In addition to our three nurseries, the company as a whole has been named amongst the ‘Top 20 Most Recommended large nursery groups in the UK’ with a review score of 9.8 out of 10. The 2021 award makes it four ‘Top 20’ places for the company, having been featured each year since the awards started in 2018.

The awards follow the wonderful number of quality reviews we have received across all our 24 nurseries so its thanks to you, our supportive families who have taken the time to submit the reviews, that these high places have been achieved. Your support means so much to everyone at Children 1st.

And of course, our marvellous staff deserve praise as it’s their sustained dedication to providing children with the best possible start in life, upon which the reviews are based.

Jacqui Mason, our Managing Director comments: “We are so proud of how our passionate and dedicated staff teams have risen to the most unprecedented of circumstances brought about by Covid. These reviews, across all of our settings, reflect their unwavering commitment to always going the extra mile. The overwhelming responses we have had from our families has been heart-warming and means so much to us all. I would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone who has played a part in this achievement.”

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave us a review. Its means the world to us!
