We are outstanding!

In February 2022, we received the result of our most recent Ofsted inspection and we are delighted to be able to say that West Park Kindergarten is OUTSTANDING!

Everyone at the nursery has been exceptional, the hard work and dedication towards the children by everyone here is truly amazing and we are all delighted that our hard work has been rewarded. We would like to thank everyone who supported the nursery and helped achieve this amazing result. We look forward to the future where can continue to build upon this outstanding foundation on which we hope to achieve many more outstanding results.

A message from our Director

I would like to thank all the amazing, hardworking, and passionate staff at West Park Kindergarten whose efforts have earned them a well deserved Outstanding grading from Ofsted. I am extremely proud of each and every one whose hard work and dedication has helped them to achieve such an amazing result.

On March 6th we celebrate be the 22nd anniversary of the opening of West Park Kindergarten, our first nursery, and it brings me great joy to see how far we have come. We now have 5 nurseries (4 of them based in South Tyneside) and all of them have earned an Ofsted Outstanding grading which is all down to the exceptional teams they have who continue to give everything so that we can provide such outstanding childcare for our community.

I would also like to thank all our lovely parents who have supported and encouraged us throughout the years, without your support and kind comments this would not have been possible. Everything we do at our nurseries is for you and the children, so that we may give them the very best start in life.
