Awards & Recognition

We are over the moon to have participated in the “Early Years Quality Assurance Framework” and be awarded the “Gold Award” which is the highest rating possible.

Achieving this award evidences our commitment to recognising quality and working together with the local authority to contribute to positively improving the outcomes for children.

The Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) consists of five sections to which we were measured over the given timeframe, these are:

1) Leadership and management
2) Care and welfare
3) Learning and development
4) Inclusion – supporting children with additional needs
5) Partnerships with parents, agencies and the wider community

These five areas are at the heart of the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage and are
integral to all that we do.

The whole team at Kids Start, including staff, children, parents and other agencies, have contributed to this award. 

We are so very proud – our certificate is displayed in the dining room, please take a look! 

Please just ask us if you would like more information about this award.
