Welcome to Gardner Road Kindergarten

Gardner Road is an independent, not-for-profit Kindergarten located in Epsom. 


We provide a caring and vibrant learning environment for 3 to 5 year olds - a place where they are valued as individuals.


Our teachers are passionate about what they do and create an exciting and ever-changing environment for the children.


We listen, share and support each child’s learning journey because every child has a unique mix of needs and interests.


At the end of your child's time with us, we hope to have fostered a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

Why choose us?

Playing in the playground boat
Our team


Our early childhood education programme is delivered by 5 fully-qualified and experienced teachers at every session.


Our qualified teacher:child ratio is double that of other local kindergartens.

"All activities allow me to develop my curiosity, my imagination and, through ​my enjoyment, my concentration."

Our programme

Our Kindergarten sessions are semi structured and incorporate a mixture of free play and dedicated mat and music time every day.

Transition to school

The transition from Kindergarten to school can be a challenging experience. 


We can help prepare your child for school in a caring and fun-filled way. We offer small group activities and outings tailored just for our 4 year olds.​

Holding hands on the beach trip
The programme is amazing, bursting with creativity and learning with just enough structure so they're ready for school. I've really felt like my children have each been allowed to be themselves while at the same time being supported and extended in their learning.”
