A WIRRAL children's nursery has been rated among the Top 20 in the North West, according to the results of a survey out this week. 

Parents made their thoughts known about Kids Planet Wallasey on daynurseries.co.uk , a leading review site for nurseries in the UK.

The Top 20 Nursery Awards 2024 recognise 20 of the top rated nurseries in each region of the UK, based on reviews from parents/individuals responsible for a child.

Kids Planet Wallasey was among 1,715 early years settings in the North West on the review site.

The nurseries were rated on overall standard, facilities and outside space, learning, resources and equipment and ICT, care, activities, staff, food and nutrition, management, cleanliness, safeguarding as well as value for money.

Jennie Little, deputy manager at Kids Planet Wallasey, said: "We are delighted to be recognised in the Top 20 nurseries in the Northwest.

"The children are at the heart of everything we do here at Kids Planet Wallasey, and it is extremely heart-warming to read how appreciative and supportive our parents are.

"Our staff are extremely passionate about providing first-class childcare and supporting families.

"We remain committed to giving all children the best possible start in life."

Amanda Hopkins, reviews manager of daynurseries.co.uk, said: "We would like to congratulate Kids Planet on being rated by parents as a top nursery in the North West! Being rated so highly by family and carers of children that attend the setting is a huge achievement.

Our award is valuable recognition from parents and carers that this nursery is offering their children an excellent standard of care and a stimulating environment, which will help boost their development and hopefully create a lifelong love of learning. We hope these awards give parents that much needed guidance in choosing the right nursery for their child.”

There are over 14,000 nurseries in the UK, with over 400,000 people working in the childcare sector. Around one million children in the UK attend a nursery, ranging in age from three months to five years old.
