"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn" - Maria Montessori
Welcome Message from the Director,
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 is 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 he/she will build on in later life.
I hope our interactive 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.
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
