Private education for the Early Years. Preparing children for the transition to school by developing independence, confidence and a love of learning. Kinder Lodge offers flexibility to parents with half or full day sessions available.read more
Kinder Lodge was opened in 2000 in the outstanding greenbelt surroundings of Verulam Playing Fields. Our purpose built Norwegian Log cabin was inspired by fairytales like Hansel and Gretel as we wanted somewhere magical and inspiring for children to learn.
It is divided into four learning areas and has a large garden. In addition to our nursery facilities we have exclusive use of the field and woodland area for county walks and sports activities. The site benefits from a large car park for parent parking.

Are you looking for a children's nursery in Harpenden or Wheathampsted? Many of our families travel from outside of the St Albans area to attend our nursery school because of our unique approach, flexible attendance and outstanding facilities.
Every parent wants their child to have the best possible start in life and the best experiences before they head off to primary school. Those formative years when a child attends day care are vital in the early development of a child. If those years are care free but structured, happy and productive years then a child is more likely to enjoy and excel at school.
Providing daycare provision for children aged 2-5 years old, the happiness and development of your child is our key concern, which is why we’ve created a friendly, happy and creative environment in which each individual child can flourish.
If you’re looking for a children’s nursery in Wheathampsted, Harpenden or the surrounding areas then look to Mount Carmel Kindergarten. Based in St Albans, our nursery will offer everything you’ve been looking for in a pre-school education and day care centre.
Our unique “carousel” method of early years education settles children and enhances their learning by offering them with a broad range of learning experiences in every session.read more
