In any case, I would call it a nursery, play-school or childminder.

Other questions about "Kindergarten"

Q: (at kindergarten, before dancing) put your hands on the side. Does this sound natural?
A: When at kindergarten, place your hands on your sides before dancing.
Q: I've chosen your kindergarten since it is relatively small sized one, so my kinds can get more attention and have more friendly atmosphere. Does this sound natural?
A: We typically say "class size" or "student to faculty ratio" when expressing this. I'd say class size, in this case since it is a kindergarten and not a college. It is more broad. This would make it "I've chosen your kindergarten since it has a relatively small class size."

Then to continue, I'd say "My kids will receive more one on one attention from staff, and thrive in a more friendly environment." By saying "one on one", I am just trying to be more specific in how the attention will help the student.

Also in your sentence, you say the kids "have more friendly atmosphere." based on where you placed "and". But atmosphere isn't something people have, it is the place. (The people may impact the atmosphere, but the place has the atmosphere) Instead you need to say how the place's atmosphere will effect the kids.

I changed "atmosphere" to "environment." Atmosphere makes it seem more like you are talking about a restaurant instead of a more formal academic setting.
