Our Southport Nursery Have Received Ofsted Outstanding


11 July 2017

We are pleased to announce that our Kids Planet Southport nursery has achieved ‘Outstanding in All Areas’ Ofsted inspection in June 2017.


Clare Roberts, Chief Executive of Kids Planet Group said “I am thrilled that our Southport nursery has achieved outstanding by Ofsted. Sue and her team have worked very hard, with their passion and commitment, they ensure all the children receive the very best childcare possible.

To date, we have 19 nurseries and have achieved 13 outstanding rating by Ofsted at Southport, Salford, Higher Broughton, Beamont (Warrington), Crewe, Widnes, Lymm, Prestwich, Sale, Hale, Warrington, Springhead and Dukinfield. Our remaining 6 nurseries are still awaiting inspection.”

The full Ofsted report is available to read in more detail. Below are some extracts from the report.


“The expertise and passion of the leadership team and the enthusiasm and commitment of the stable staff team are a major strength of the nursery”.

“Children’s physical skills and knowledge of healthy lifestyles are particularly well promoted through a variety of rich opportunities”.

“Exceptional information sharing with parents and other professionals helps to support continuity in children’s care and learning. Parents express how highly they value all the support from nursery staff and say they have recommended the nursery to others.”


The nursery, formerly known as Yarrow House Day Nursery, was established in 1962 and was a former church. The nursery is located close to Southport town center and has large open plan rooms with outdoor areas which caters for outdoor play in all weather in line with the EYFS.

Our Southport nursery was acquired in 2015 and is open between 08:00-18:00 Monday-Friday and only closed on bank holidays.  Within Kids Planet our fully qualified and carefully selected staff are friendly, approachable, caring and actively work to preserve the magic of childhood. By developing young minds through play, we help give children the very best start. Kids Planet provide all you expect from an Ofsted outstanding nursery, and so much more.
