We are Kinderly

Our Story

Kinderly is passionate about giving all children the best start in life. Our intuitive, specialist app makes the early years experience better, by saving time and money, while increasing positive parent engagement and involvement.

The idea came from two busy working parents juggling two pre-school children, two fulltime jobs and two different nurseries. You can feel like you're missing out on so much of your child(ren)'s early years development journey because a two year old can't tell you what he did today. With the Kinderly app, you can be there every step of the way, even when you're not.

Our secure app has been designed in consultation with experts, from early years childcare practitioners to an Ofsted inspector. It’s easy-to-use, it’s fully EYFS compliant and it delivers real benefits to nursery owners & managers, early years practitioners (including childminders & nannies) and parents.

So whether it’s photos from the bug hunt or the observation of a major development milestone, everyone can be part of a truly positive nursery adventure.

Make that first step to saving time, money and a rewarding relationship with parents - try Kinderly for free today! Remember we don’t need your credit card details from you for you to enjoy one month of free unlimited use of our great app.
