Arty Party at Kids 1st

During the summer, children at Kids 1st Gosforth made pieces of art with Newcastle Clown Doctors. The pieces of art were sold at an auction and raffle which took place on September 14th at the nursery for the children and their parents. Over £500 was raised from artwork. Thank you to everyone at Kids 1st Nursery Gosforth for helping keep children happy, healthy & safe.

Face-painting and lots of other art activities were enjoyed on the day
