Shannon Haggas

Centre Director

Hello my name is Shannon, and I am the Centre Director here at Kids 1st Blaydon. I have been working within the early years sector for over 13 years where my passion to watch children learn and grow!

I worked my way up from a childcare apprentice right up to nursery manager. I joined kids 1st Blaydon when I moved to the area in February 2022 and have since welcomed a little girl who joins me at nursery full time. I am proud to work with and be part of such a wide range of people within the company with amazing skills and provide a stimulating and exciting environment for each and every child who attends Kids 1st Blaydon.
