Parent Reviews

  • "The nursery staff have really helped reduce our anxiety about having our first child in daycare. They provide a lot of detailed updates on children's progress and how their day was and their safeguarding procedures appear robust. They go to great lengths to develop fun learning activities for the children. The food offered is varied and our child enjoys it. Overall we are happy with the choice we made for our child with Kindred Harlow."

  • "Lovely nursery. Very friendly staff and nice atmosphere. My son has lots of fun. He gets a lot of support and is learning new things. He loves the music sessions they have. I appreciate all the observations we get. It is great to be able to see what he was doing and how much he enjoys himself. I find the nursery to be well organised and best for communications. I never previously experienced such a good email and online portal system in my son's previous nursery and in my daughter's one when she was smaller. I also found that the staff members are very professional and do not make anything difficult. I can peacefully go to work or do other things and I never worry about my son like I did before we changed the nursery to Kindred."

  • "Wonderful nursery, my little girl attended for 3 years and my little boy has been attending for almost a year. They both love/loved coming here. Staff are amazing, attentive and really helpful. Puts my mind at rest knowing my children are really happy when coming to nursery!"

  • "Absolutely outstanding, preschool team are fantastic and they helped to boost my son's confidence. I am highly impressed. Thanks to the entire team, especially one staff member in particular. They are very caring and every day during pick up and drop off, they make us feel welcomed. We and our son are happy to be at the nursery."

  • "My son has been going to Kindred since he was 9 months old. Whatever stage he’s going through all the staff are very supportive. If we are ever unsure of anything we speak to management who always make time to speak to us. My son's key worker is excellent and always updates me with nap time, food eaten etc. My son went through a stage of crying at drop off but after speaking to the staff they came up with ideas like a sticker chart to help my son going in and it worked. I feel they always will go the extra mile for children and parents. I would highly recommend Kindred."
