Our Nursery

Stanground and Cardea's new state-of-the-art nursery is opening in Summer 2022. Your child will benefit from our 25 years of experience in childcare.


Alpha Kindergarten Stanground is the new nursery from the team behind one of Peterborough's longest running nurseries. Parents have been choosing Alpha Kindergarten for over 25 years because of our exceptional experience of caring for children.

Based on Whittlesey Road, Alpha Kindergarten Stanground is in an ideal location for parents in Stanground and Cardea. The new purpose-built nursery has been designed with the needs of children first - putting them at the heart of everything we do.

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.

Opening in Summer 2022, Alpha Kindergarten Stanground will be 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.


Why you'll love our nursery

1. An experienced and qualified team

Alpha Kindergarten is one of the longest running nursery groups in Peterborough. We have over 25 years of experience caring for children and helping to give them the best start in life. 

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


2. State-of-the-art nursery designed for children first

Our new nursery has been designed with the needs of children first. Every step of the way, it is being built to keep them safe and ensure that we maximise their chances to learn and play.

Our rooms are light and spacious, giving them space to learn and play with their friends. Each room has direct access to a child-friendly bathroom and easy access to our stunning outdoor play area. 


3. Your child treated as 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.


4. Strong relationships with families

Our ethos is about building 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.


5. Convenient location for you

Located on Whittlesey Road, our nursery is perfect for parents en route to Peterborough City Centre and provides convenient childcare for parents in Cardea and Stanground and Whittlesey.    

We have the largest car park of any nursery in Peterborough, so that you won't be struggling to find a parking space during drop-off and pick-up times.


6. Healthy and delicious home-cooked meals

Our in-house cook will make 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.
