Celebrating 20 Years

Celebrating 20 years of providing high quality childcare to the community and helping to shape the next generation.

In the year 2000 a magical moment was created, not only did we hit a millennium but our very first nursery was established ‘West Park Kindergarten’.

A nursery that was founded by Eamonn and Susan Gribben who provided an inspiring environment purposely for young children.

Over the years we have expanded by opening many nurseries in South Tyneside and beyond: Westoe Village Kindergarten, Harton Village Kindergarten, Bede Burn Kindergarten, Rothbury and The Bungalow all with a passionate team who provide and enhance all learning in a range of ways through investigation and exploration to each individual child.

We continue to create and magnify a positive pathway which has been proven by our three recent ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspections and would like to thank all parent’s/carers and our dedicated team for their ongoing support and helping us to ‘shape the next generation.’

Message From The Manager

To the Westoe Girls

First of all, thank you! Thank you for your hard work, your dedication, your inspiring ideas, your motivation, your teamwork and finally thank you for just being you.

You are all like a four-leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have. The children that have come through our secret garden gate over the past years are truly lucky children.

I’m excited to see what our future will hold for us and the children attending.

You are definitely providing the children with that ‘Giant leap’ whilst shaping them to become ‘Our next generation’.

Just remember there’s no “I” in TEAM

Thank you,
