Kindercare works really hard to ensure the children have an amazing and fun experience. My daughter not only has an exciting time, she is also learning, trying new foods and made new friends. Kindercare staff worked brilliantly with her and her potty training. She grasped it in one week. I couldn't be happier with the work and care they provide! 5 stars *****

Kindercare Pudsey has really helped my little girl settle in and she now gets excited to arrive and loves all the staff. This has made returning to work so much easier. They have excellent facilities providing lots of play and learning opportunities. My little girl's learning has accelerated as well as her solid skills.

My son has been attending Kindercare for nearly 2 years now and he has come on so well in that time. The staff provide so much care and attention to all the children and parents. With the help of Kindercare my son now has so much confidence and is learning new things with the activities they provide daily. Very impressed all round.

Many thanks for your review!

Fantastic Nursery!
Our little boy has been attending for 2 years and absolutely loves 'Nursery day's'. The staff are very welcoming and show attention to detail with every child's development and needs. A wide range of activities are provided on a daily basis for the children and our son has learnt so much! sometimes surprising us with the knowledge he has gained from nursery! The staff ensure that all children are safe and well looked after and promote a lot of independence for the children! The nursery offers a range of homemade meals and snacks for the children and attends to all dietary requirements. A range of activities is provided throughout the year such as Easter bonnet parade, harvest festival and nativity for us parents to get involved in. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you provide!

Many thanks for your review. The team will just love to hear how much your little boy loves nursery days. We hope you enjoy the next event coming up!

The nursery is overpriced for service received. Nursery staff are lovely, very friendly and excellent with the children, but, as a company, Kindercare are very difficult to work with.
I have two children and so collectively we have used Kindercare for almost 6 years, both starting at 4 months old, my eldest attended up to school age, I will be moving my youngest when he receives his government funded hours. When my eldest first attended, the nursery was exceptional, the best in the area, however, I have seen a decline over the years.

My son absolutely loves attending Kindercare - Pudsey, he has learnt so much since been there and loves all the staff. There is so much for them to do and play with and have a great selection or toys. My son always tells me what a great day he has had when I pick him up and shows me all the songs and dances he has learned, would definitely recommend Kindercare - Pudsey to my friends and family.

Hi, Thank you for the fantastic review, it's great to hear how happy your son is at the nursery. We will pass on your comments to the team.

My son really enjoys his days at Kindercare, Pudsey. The staff are all really friendly and he can't wait to say hello to them in the morning. We get really good feedback as to what he's eaten (which is a real variety of food with lots of fruit and veg) what he's played with, whether he's had a nap and if so for how long and how many nappy changes he's had. He's always coming out with new songs that they've learnt and he brings home lots of pictures and sometimes buns that they've helped to make.
They always do seasonal activities as well and in general just seem to have a real wealth of activities for them to do - far more than I would be able to do with him at home.

Our daughter has attended Kindercare for nearly 2 years and we are delighted with her care. She goes into nursery with a big smile on her face and talks about the adults that look after her fondly. Nursery has really encouraged her to be more confident, play nicely with other children and learn about the world around her.
We chose the nursery primarily due to the outstanding manager and the ethos she instils through all her wonderful staff.

My children love their time at KinderCare Pudsey. My youngest has settled in lovely in a short space of time and my eldest always looks forward to her nursery days, having made great friends and building a great rapport with the staff. Any queries that we've had have been dealt with quickly and efficiently. We can't ask for anything more and I feel very comfortable leaving my children in this very safe and friendly nursery, which I would recommend to anybody.

My son has been attending KinderCare for 2 years now and he absolutely loves it! KinderCare was recommended to me by a friend and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone in the future. The team there have been excellent with my boy and were quick to move him into the older class when they noticed his engagement levels dropping which has been great for his continued overall development. All the staff know all the children and the parents which I think adds a family feel and certainly reassures me that I am leaving my little one in the best care. The nursery manager always has a smile and a story for parents, she seems to have the best job in the World (I don't know how she does it!!!). Excellent nursery, keep up the good work!!

Many thanks for your review. We're very proud of the team and will pass on your comments.

The only nursery I trust. My child has allergies and all of the staff have always been great in dealing with them and I trust them more than some family members in avoiding allergens. My child loves going to nursery and cries when he has to come home and they have encouraged learning I didn't know where to start with. I would recommend them to everyone!!!

Kindercare Pudsey is a great nursery - our daughter absolutely loves it and gets so excited when we arrive every morning. The nursery has such a friendly and loving atmosphere and it is clear that everyone there loves their job. I feel safe in the knowledge that our little girl is well-looked after and has great fun all day. Even if she's a bit under the weather, I know she will be given cuddles when she needs them and she is in safe hands. I recommend this nursery to all my friends, in fact, three of our daughter's friends have now joined! Keep up the great work!

I put my little girl into Kindercare at 9 months old upon recommendation and I have not been disappointed. The care she receives is excellent - fabulous staff and management. It's a wonderful environment for learning, playing and extremely high standards of cleanliness and hygiene. I feel very confident that I am leaving my little girl in safe hands with the girls at Kindercare and I value the care and support they provide to us as a family. I couldn't be happier with my choice of nursery!

My son started at this nursery in March 2014 at 10 months old and has flourished in the environment provided by Kindercare ever since. He is now 2¼ and surprises me every day when I collect him with something new that he has learnt or an activity he has done. I knew as soon as I looked round the nursery that it was the right place for him, so clean & stimulating! The Manager is a fantastic leader and a credit to Kindercare.
The friendly, cheery staff welcome the children with a smile every morning & provide a review of your child’s day upon collection. The staff know the children so well like their own which is really comforting. My son has always struggled with eating and been very picky with food but to my delight the staff here have encouraged him to try new things which has broadened his diet more than I could have ever expected. He is extremely happy here & talks fondly about the staff by name and developed lots of little friendships which is lovely. We are currently receiving fantastic support with potty training which has made the whole transition so manageable. Like all mothers dropping their child at nursery for the first time I anticipated the guilt and sadness at leaving him in the care of others all day, in an unfamiliar environment but I have never looked back and know he is cared for so well & will always receive a cuddle if he needs one. I honestly couldn’t recommend them enough. Thanks Kindercare.

My daughter is full time at Kindercare Pudsey and she absolutely loves going to nursery. She settled easily at 9 months and has loved attending ever since. Her development is fantastic and she is doing well with learning letters, numbers, counting, shapes and colours and she is only 2 1/2. She loves the mixture of activities and always says that her day was 'very fun' or 'brilliant'. She has good relationships with all the staff and has lots of friends including some particular children she really loves to play with. Kindercare staff are always friendly and approachable and have dealt with any issues sensitively and helpfully. All the staff know the children well and all have good skills and knowledge. The activities are very varied and always include outdoor play except in the very worst weather, baking once a week, loads of singing, and at least two pictures to bring home each day. Communication with parents is good with a monthly newsletter published online, a monthly summary sent home with space for parents comments, and also a chat with staff morning and evening each day. My husband and I also attended a recent parent's evening and had a really helpful discussion with our daughter's keyworker, and were able to bring home her profile with detailed information about her progress, what she enjoys and loads of photographs. We are extremely satisfied with the provision and cannot wait to be able to send our second child (due in December).

My son has been coming here 3 years and absolutely loves it. I was one of those mums who didn't want anyone to look after my child and doubted anyone would be good enough! but after visiting every nursery in Pudsey and been disappointed, we walked into Kindercare and it just felt right. After a lot of tears (on my part) off my son went and he's never looked back! The staff are amazing, the nursery is warm and homely, they're always cleaning up, they're very organised, the security system is fantastic there's the outside door, an intercom, and 2 inside doors that you have to wait to be opened for you, even I can't get in sometimes haha, but no stranger gets in and no child gets out so it's perfect! They also attend to my son's lactose free diet very well, the only problem is my son will be starting school next year and I don't know if schools gonna match up to all these standards! There's always something going on, parents eve, nativity, sports day, Easter bonnets etc to involve us parents as much as possible. We get a summary of their day on collection which is lovely to know what little ones been up to while you're working hard! As well as a monthly summary and portfolio to take home and have a giggle at. I can work in peace with no stress knowing how well my son is looked after. Accidents are tended to in the right manor...compress and lots of
cuddles, I can't do with these places that say you can't cuddle children...if my son falls take it as sin he needs a hug and I'm grateful the girls are so lovely they're only too happy to comfort him! I have recommended Kindercare to my friends and now their little one goes and loves it! I have just had a terrible 2 years being taken through court for custody by my sons dad...twice! Which I've won...twice, And nursery have been fantastic, they have supported me and my son in every aspect! I'm really going to be sad when we have to leave and getting emotional just thinking about it! Thank you for been such an amazing place for my son to learn and grow in, you need to open a primary school now!!
