Parent Reviews

  • "Great nursery cook as my child has allergies. Great to know he’s included in activities eg. baking/messy play.
    Great app to see how they are doing throughout the day which I love.
    My other children went to this nursery too, the manager is friendly and professional and happy to help. Definitely recommend this nursery to anyone."

  • "My daughter started at Kindred at the beginning of February and as the same as most babies got upset for the first week or two but the staff in Curiosity Crescent went above and beyond to make her feel welcome. Not with just day-to-day activities but with love and care. She is now happy going into the nursery and has even started putting her arms out to staff at the front door with a big smile. I am also very impressed with the variety of food offered to the children. Thank you for welcoming us into Kindred so kindly and professionally."

  • "After making the decision to remove our twin boys from their previous early years setting, it’s been a breath of fresh air since they began at Kindred Lowdham and a totally stress-free experience. We can’t fault the quality of care given by all the staff members and our boys are extremely happy to attend nursery. The environment itself is just lovely. Thorough handovers are given at the end of each day and do not feel rushed which is really refreshing. We’re so happy that they are coming home well fed too, the menu is fantastic. We can’t fault our experience so far."

  • "I moved from another county to Alphabet House and was very apprehensive because of all the changes my daughter was experiencing due to divorce. Alphabet House/Kindred Lowdham Nursery & Pre-school staff were incredibly supportive and can honestly say it feels like a little family. They are very attentive to all of my daughter's needs and development milestones. My daughter is thriving in this very loving and supportive environment. Compared to the last nursery, you can tell the staff love to be there, love the children and have excellent relationships with them rather than it just being a job. The staff really care and go out of their way to support me and my daughter. The manager is fantastic and clearly promotes a happy environment, full of fun, curiosity and wonder."

  • "I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kindred to other parents; the staff in the baby room are so kind, warm and it feels like they really actually enjoy looking after our child. Given that the baby room is often people’s first experience of a childcare setting, the staff in there are a credit to the nursery. Our child had some specific medical needs to be taken in to account and the staff took this so seriously, they really reassured us that our child would be well cared for."

  • "Staff are always very friendly and enthusiastic.
    Staff know the children well and show lots of interest in them.
    Lots of different activities. Flexible on attendance days. Good food menu and meals with variety."
