Our History

Established in 1991 by Carol Evelegh and her late husband, The Kindergartens has been supporting, educating and inspiring children for over 30 years.

Our family-run ethos is still very much present since we joined the Dukes Education family, which allows us to offer a bespoke early education for children aged 6 months to 5 years.

Leading our exceptional team is Joanne Allen, our Principal, who has been an integral part of The Kindergartens for 25 years. With her guidance, our Head Teachers in all seven locations strive to provide the highest quality care and education.

For an in-depth understanding of our journey, we encourage you to explore our previous Ofsted inspection reports, all of which have received the highest rating of “Outstanding”. These reports offer valuable insights into the rich history of The Kindergartens.

Preserving our heritage is of utmost importance to us, as we firmly believe in consistently delivering exceptional outcomes for children, not just for the present but for many more decades to come.
