Why Choose Kindred Nurseries

At the heart of our nurseries is our wonderful staff. Offering award-winning, highly qualified teams, each of our London-based nurseries is run by true experts in the Early Years who really understand how children learn. Our staff is continually developing their skills through our dedicated training program to ensure we always offer the highest level of service – we search to find the greatest staff to provide your children a place to develop their skills away from your family and prepare them for life outside of the house.

Each of our nurseries in London is designed to create inspiring experiences for your children, with different learning environments which encourage awe and wonder every day. We deliver an educational curriculum that meets the government standard of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and we work hard to enable confident learning, form good relationships with others, and are inspired to learn every day.

Our nursery school settings are created with exciting learning environments in mind whilst providing a home from home feel.  With indoor and outdoor spaces offering endless opportunities to explore and investigate safely, we allow children to learn in the ways which work best for their individual and community needs. We assess children regularly using observation and summative assessment methods  - don’t worry, your children never know they are being assessed and we certainly do not test children!  Throughout the year you receive updates and information reports on your child’s progress, along with having the opportunity to regularly discuss your child’s needs and progress with their keyworker and members of staff.
