Our Story

KidCo Independent Day Nursery Our Story


KidCo Day Nursery started back in 1995 by Ann Elliott. Ann worked as a nurse for NHS England for many years but was constantly frustrated by the lack of good quality childcare for her own children! 

She began childminding 4 children on her days off, she soon needed to employ some staff to meet the demand of constant recommendations and Kid Co was born! 

Over the years we have grown and grown. To this day recommendations remain our main source of new custom, something which we are enormously proud of. 

Ann’s ethos of a fun family environment where children can learn, grow and achieve to their full potential, will continue to be upheld by her team. 


We are members of EYA – The Early Years Alliance.
