Kids Planet Barkston Ash has received a makeover ahead of the next Open Day on 23rd April 2022. A team made up of staff from surrounding Kids Planet nurseries came together on 5th March, giving up their Saturday’s to lend a hand.
Previously Rainbow Day Nursery, the Tadcaster nursery was acquired by the Kids Plant in November 2021, and was the first nursery for the group in the Yorkshire area. Since then, the group has acquired two more nursery groups in the Yorkshire area – nine Kinder Haven nurseries in December, and six Twinkles nurseries in February.
The move into Yorkshire represents the company’s continued growth across the whole of the UK (currently standing at 107 active nurseries within the group), providing Kids Planet with a strong position firmly within the North East region to continue expansion plans.
Kirsty Jackson, Quality Director at Kids Planet, said: “It is wonderful to see Lisa and the team fully embracing the Kids Planet approach and the development of the vast outdoor play spaces will definitely be one to watch!
It was a great day, with both the Barkston Ash team and teams from the surrounding Kids Planet nurseries coming together to create stimulating, ‘home-from-home’ environments that promote children’s innate curiosity and support their individual needs and interests.”
Kids Planet Barkston Ash is a popular childcare setting for babies, toddlers, pre-school and out of school care. Open Monday to Friday 7.30am – 6.00pm, the nursery is uniquely set within circa six acres of land, with the children’s areas placed across three extensive buildings and impressive landscaped outdoor areas.
