Parent Reviews

  • "Could not ask for a warmer, safer place to leave my daughter!
    All the staff are wonderful, and the app makes it so easy to see what your child has been up to during the day!
    Would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the Hemel Boxmoor/Berkhampstead area!"

  • "Kindred is amazing. Great location on a lovely bit of land surrounded by animals and countryside. The staff are amazing, and our boy has learnt so much. We owe a lot to the amazing work everyone who works at Kindred does.
    Highly recommend!"

  • "Absolutely delighted with the nursery, it feels like a home away from home. The staff are amazing and show such love and adoration for the children. Lots of activities and play experiences are set up for educational benefit. Would recommend!"

  • "My son has attended two other nurseries, neither of which I was happy with. He is so happy now, the staff have been so welcoming and my son’s confidence has improved greatly since attending the nursery. I cannot find fault with anything, I would highly recommend Kindred Hemel Hempstead Nursery and Pre-School."

    Gemma P

  • "They have been incredibly supportive of me and my son. He enjoys everything about his time at nursery which is such a relief for me knowing he is being well looked after while I'm not with him, thank you."

  • "We moved our 16-month-old daughter to Kindred in Hemel Hempstead from another, bigger nursery in another area in November of this year and could not be happier with the move. It's only been a couple of months but it's been the best decision. We were not very happy with the previous nursery and there was a fear that they are all the same, but this move has proved that wrong!
    The manager is always there for anything you need, she is passionate about the nursery, knows all the children and all the parents. The whole feel of the place is different to most nurseries I've seen - it's got a great family feel and everyone is close-knit, even the parents seem to know each other well. My daughter settled super quickly and it feels like she's at home there.
    One member of the learning lane staff is brilliant and you can tell she has a great relationship with all the kids. I trust her with everything. My daughter adores her. Another member of the learning lane staff is also lovely. Highly, highly recommend this place! Super grateful for it!
