Kids Planet is very much a family group originally set up by Chief Executive Clare Roberts and Clare’s father, Chairman John Hoban. John’s other daughter Lucy Kaczmarska joined the group in July 2013 and took the role of Early Years Director.
The nurseries are located in the North West of England, providing outstanding childcare. Currently the Kids Planet Group consists of Kids Planet Day Nurseries and Jeffrey’s Corner. Our plan is to open more nurseries around the North West providing outstanding childcare.
