Jodie Hall, senior area manager at Kids 1st said:

“We have enjoyed an ongoing special relationship with Disney On Ice for many years, with initiatives that have enhanced our pupils’ pre-school journeys, including the sponsorship of bespoke Friendship Stations where children can sit and bond together – an important aspect of the pre-schooler’s development. The children are all big Disney fans, and sang ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ at their graduation ceremonies this summer. Children and parents alike are thrilled  about being in the lucky draw to win tickets to the show, and we’re very excited to be part of this initiative with Disney On Ice.

Steven Armstrong, European North vice-president for Feld Entertainment, producers of Disney On Ice, said:

“We’re delighted to be able to join forces once more with the award-winning Kids 1st Nurseries in the North East. It looks as though a great day was had by all, and the performance of ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ was absolutely adorable!”
