Our Nursery

Alpha Kindergarten has been providing childcare in Peterborough since 1996 and has consistently been commended as 'Good' by Ofsted.

From babies to preschool, parents have been choosing our nursery for 25 years and we are proud that so many parents join us after recommendations from friends and family. That's because we build strong relationships with families to help us provide the best possible care for your child.

The first five years of your child's life will see them develop more quickly than at any other time. So we know how important it is that we work together to help your child progress at nursery and at home to reach their full potential. They will learn and play with their friends as they become happy, social and confident learners who are ready for school.

Open weekdays from 8am - 6pm, we care for children from 6 weeks until it's time to go to school. Unlike many day nurseries, we are open during the school holidays and are closed only on bank holidays.


1. Your child treated like an individual

We know that your child is unique and will have their own interests, strengths and weaknesses. We don't believe that there is one-size-fits-all approach to childcare - instead, our staff will adapt based on your child and their development.  

So your child will receive individual attention with personalised development plans as they start to grasp key skills through play with activities personalised around them. Working with parents, we will ensure that your child's individual needs are identified and met to provide the very best care.

2. Strong relationships with families

Ofsted have commended our efforts to build strong relationships with families as we work with you to create a shared approach to your child's learning.   

Each day, you can view photographs and observations of your children as they play and learn both in the nursery and using the secure Famly app on your computer or phone.

3. An experienced and qualified team

Each day, you will drop your child off knowing that they are in the hands of qualified professionals. All of our staff are qualified childcare specialists and hold additional qualifications such as paediatric first aid, child behaviour and child emotional development.

4. One of Peterborough's longest running nurseries

We have been caring for children for 25 years and your child will benefit from an established nursery that local parents trust. 

A large number of our staff have been with us for many years. This consistency will give you the peace of mind that your child is being cared for by a reliable team who know childcare inside and out.

5. Convenient location

Located on Fletton Avenue, our nursery is just minutes from Peterborough City Centre and provides convenient childcare for parents in Cardea, Stanground and Hampsted.    

Arriving at the nursery in the morning, afternoon or evening is hassle free with our on-site car park and dedicated drop-off spaces.

6. Light and spacious places to play

Our light and spacious rooms give children the space to develop their skills as they learn more with their friends about the world. We have two secure outdoor areas and these give your child regular opportunities to learn and play outside.

7. Healthy and delicious home-cooked meals

Our in-house cook makes homemade food on site, using fresh and local ingredients where possible. All our menus are designed with nutrition and health in mind.  

Your child is given the opportunity to try new and delicious foods with their friends as they learn about making healthy choices.
