Looking for childcare in Billingham? Kids 1st Wynyard might just be the perfect place for your child to thrive! Our purpose-built nursery is situated within the Wynyard Business Park, on the outskirts of Billingham, packed with all the excellent facilities needed to unlock your child's potential. 

We understand that every child is different and develops at their pace. That's why our nursery is split by age range, with separate rooms for babies, toddlers, and pre-school children. This approach allows the children to grow and develop their confidence alongside those at a similar stage in their journey. 

Our nursery rooms are light, airy, and finished with an inviting decor. They all feature lots of toys, games and activity areas designed to keep the kids fully engaged and learning while they're with us - from play kitchens to drawing tables. We look to set your child up with the best start in life, by following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, our team ensures all children are prepared for the next big milestone: full-time primary school education. 

Our Billingham nursery also offers outdoor space for children to explore. We encourage the children to enjoy the fresh air, be active and, most importantly, have lots of fun in the process. It's a space where they can also learn about taking safe risks under the supervision of our nursery staff. 

Ready to come and see the facilities at our Billingham day nursery? Our team can't wait to give you the warm welcome. Book your visit today.

Kids 1st Nursery Billingham Location

Where can you find our Billingham nursery? 

Well, we're located on Wynyard Business Park (just off the A689) - it's about a 10-minute drive away from Billingham town centre. 

When you arrive, you'll find plenty of on-site car parking in front of the nursery, and away from the main part of the business park. This means you don't have to worry about busy roads when dropping off or picking up your child. 

Our nursery on Wynyard Business Park also features a secure buggy store. So, if you want, you can always leave your buggy with us when you drop off your child and come back for it when you pick them up - safe and sound.
