About Alphabet House in Waterside Park
We are an EYFS-based nursery in Waterside Park, using Montessori principles to help children reach their full potential. We care for children from 3 months to 5 years old, and provide a range of age appropriate resources and activities to encourage their development right up until they are ready to join school.
Our philosophy is based on learning and creativity. By blending indoor and outdoor classrooms and environments in a home-away-from-home environment, we are able to create a space where children feel empowered and ready to learn.
Who We Are
Hi, I'm Kemi. I'm the Owner and Director of The Alphabet House Nursery.
On behalf of everyone at The Alphabet House Nursery School, I would like to welcome you into our Website and hope that we are able to provide you with an insight into who we are and how we can ensure that your child gains the best educational experience and care possible with us.
Since inception in 1994, our goals have remained the same - to deliver you, the Parent/Guardian, with a high level of satisfaction by providing your child with excellent care and an enabling, learning environment at all times throughout each of our nurseries. We acknowledge that the early years are a very important stage in a child's life and therefore a good Nursery education plays a vital role in this fundamental stage in a child's development. This is why at The Alphabet House Nursery Schools our primary aim is to ensure that your child gets a solid foundation on which they will build on in later life.
I hope our website provides all the information you require. If not, do feel free to call or visit us for further information. We look forward to welcoming you.here

About Our Waterside Park Location
When you visit us here at The Alphabet House, you’ll see firsthand what makes us different!
Our nursery schools are open for 51 weeks throughout the year, operating 5 days a week from 8am to 6pm. We are closed during Bank holidays and Christmas and staff training days which parents are informed of. We are a paying provision for children from ages 3 months to 5 years, and we also provide funded hours for eligible 2 year old & 3- 4 year.
Our curriculum is based on The Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS) which sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years’ providers must follow the EYFS.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.
Our Nursery practitioners will be working with each parent, sharing information about your child’s progress. Understanding what your child is doing when they are with others will help you to notice how well they are developing and learning. The part you play in their learning and the choices you make will make a difference to their future.
Key features of our nurseries:
Merging Teaching and Childcare
We offer a variety of programs, including care for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. We also offer holiday care for children aged 3 - 5 years old.
We believe that it’s never too early to start learning and that it’s vital to always present opportunities for children to learn and grow as soon as they start at our setting.
By developing our programs with curriculum experts and childcare specialists, we’ve been able to hone in on what makes early education a success and created a learning program that allows our children to enter school seamlessly.
What to Expect from The Alphabet House
Our mission is to provide the highest quality childcare in Waterside Park, if not the world!
Our Safe & Secure Facilities
Our facilities provide state of the art security throughout, giving our parents complete peace of mind as to the safety of their precious children.
We have pin coded security entrances / exits ensuring your child is safe at all times. Each room has CCTV which is controlled and monitored by the Nursery Manager on an ongoing basis.
Each child is treated as an individual and with respect and these are values which we teach to all the children in our care. They learn to understand how we are all different and how we must always treat each other in a kind and caring manner.
We work and partner with outside professionals and agencies such as the Local Early Years Development Team; local play schools; local play groups; companies and all government initiatives to ensure that your child is receiving the highest level of education and support available.
Values & Standards
We involve parents in the education of their children in order to support and extend each child's learning and foster a climate of cooperation, respect and to promote mutual understanding.
A good relationship between the home and nursery is seen as being central to the children's success and development.
Alphabet Houses' Team work in partnership with our parents and we encourage our open door policy whereby any parent may ask to see their child at any point during the day ensuring that we uphold good practice at all times
