Parent Reviews

  • "My daughter has been coming here since she turned two and she absolutely bounds through the door each morning. The team are lovely. The food is varied and healthy. The activities are exciting. It’s a wonderful setting. The team picked up on the fact that my daughter needs extra support in some areas and is working hard to help her meet her milestones."

  • "There have been so many, the teams have been so supportive of me and my girls whilst attending the nursery. My husband frequently goes away with work and offers a huge amount of support for my children. Advice, positive feedback and love and care. I would not want my children to go anywhere else!"

  • "Every single one of the staff is lovely. They clearly care about the kids they are looking after and take the time to get to know them. Both of my children have had amazing key workers who appreciate them as individuals and help them to flourish."

    M A

  • "My toddler twins have been going to the nursery for a few months now. They have settled in really well. Staff have been great and I really feel they understand their needs. I would recommend this nursery."

    G S

  • "The team at Kindred are absolutely wonderful. As a vegan family, we were initially concerned about how this would be received at nursery, but they always go above and beyond to ensure that our child is included and that our vegan beliefs are respected. As our child is also bilingual, we really appreciate how much our home language is valued too. The care and attention given to all children is second to none, and I have absolute trust in all of them and wholeheartedly consider this a home-from-home for our child. We are greeted with enthusiasm and energy every morning, and pick-up is the same. The staff are kind, compassionate and genuinely care. We feel enormously grateful to have found such a wonderful nursery."

  • "We cannot rate Kindred St Ives highly enough! This is our third year using the nursery and we have two children attending. Our youngest has a range of intolerances, all of which are catered for without any fuss. The staff are attentive, professional, caring, and generally amazing. We know that our in the best possible setting and that is due to the incredible work of the manager, the room managers and all the staff who work so hard. Thank you!"
