Exciting news! We’ve rebranded!

What’s new:

  • Grandir UK has a new logo, new website and visual identity that represents our key purpose and mission.
  • We are growing! Our Grandir UK family is growing, we have over 70 nursery brands located across the United Kingdom
  • Read on to find why we have changed our look and why it reflects our dedication and promise to our families and local communities.

We are thrilled to announce some very exciting news.

We have outgrown our current branding and so are delighted to launch our new brand – Grandir UK!

This marks a significant milestone in our journey, providing an opportunity to reflect on our purpose as a childcare provider and all that we aspire to be as we move forward into an exciting future.

Say hello to Grandir UK:

Grandir UK will be the roots of our ever-growing family tree.

We’ve transformed as a business into a multi-brand organisation containing different nursery and preschool brands.

Each of our different nursery brands have individual identities, as we believe that every nursery is unique and reflective of its local community.

Our Brands (Part of Grandir UK)

Our Grandir UK family is continuing to grow, and we currently have over 70 nurseries under several brands located across Central and Southern England.

Our nursery locations:

  • Essex, Hertfordshire and London
  • Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex
  • Leicestershire
  • Nottingham
  • Midlands
  • South West

Each of our nurseries have their own local branding, some you may recognise (Kiddi Caru and Dicky Birds), along with some new friendly faces.

Our story

Grandir UK’s journey began 25 years ago with Kiddi Caru Day Nurseries, founded in 1998 upon wholly ethical ideals to promote quality day nursery provision.

But also, a commitment to delivering outstanding childcare to families with babies, toddlers, and preschool children – our key purpose and goal.

Since then, we have experienced some tremendous growth.

As the world of early years education is continually evolving and developing, so are we.

Over the years, we have welcomed over 13 different nursery brands and 70 nursery settings to our Grandir UK family.

What does ‘Grandir’ mean?

Our name comes from the French word ‘grandir’ that means ‘to grow’ which inspires our key purpose and vision. We want to grow together, along with our families, our children, our staff, and our business.

Why change?

Our rebrand marks the next phase in our journey and provides us with the opportunity to better communicate our breadth of expertise and the support that we can provide our families with, throughout their own journey as new parents or carers.

We want to support our families not only in nursery years, but beyond that. Watching together as children learn, grow and flourish. Preparing little ones in their first five years, not just for school, but for life!

What’s changing?

  • Our Group name
  • Our Group logo
  • Our website
  • Our clear mission, vision, and values.

What’s not changing?

  • Our ambition to be outstanding – our children deserve no less
  • Our commitment to providing exceptional care and education for our children is embedded in our DNA through our ‘ME Model’
  • Our extensive education programmes
  • Our dedicated nursery teams – their dedication and commitment to the children every day
  • The safety of our children and our nursery teams
  • Our nursery names

Let’s grow together

We are so thankful for our amazing families, nursery teams, and our partnerships that have followed us during our growth over the years. Without you all this would not be possible. So, thank you.
