Children’s Choice nursery choose Kids Planet!

Company News

28 February 2023

Kids Planet is delighted to announce the acquisition of Children’s Choice, two settings in Whitley Bay.

Building on what has been an exciting start to the year for Kids Planet, the introduction of the Children’s Choice settings will strengthen Kids Planet’s existing presence in the North East.

Clare Roberts, CEO at Kids Planet Day Nurseries, said:

“I am pleased to reveal that Children’s Choice is now part of Kids Planet. There is a strong alignment with Kids Planet’s own culture and focus, with their child led approach and strong focus on wellbeing for both children and the team. The two wonderful settings take us to a group of 152 nurseries across the UK, and I look forward to welcoming and supporting them going forward.”

Peter and Alex Thompson, former owners, said:

“Our most important criteria, if any sale was to take place, was knowing our fantastic managers and teams would be secure in their roles and that our childcare settings would continue their high-quality childcare provision. From the moment Kids Planet expressed an interest and we met them, they were receptive and aligned to this, assuring us that all staff would be safe and welcomed.

They clearly recognise the benefit of maintaining all the great things our settings already do. Kids Planet is family founded and operated, maintaining a personal touch despite being large – again very important to us. During this process we have been extremely impressed by the professionalism and approachability of the Kids Planet team. We feel safe in the knowledge we are leaving our wonderful team in very capable hands with a bright future.“
