Summary: Alexandra House is a registered Charity which was originally founded in 1839 as an orphanage for the daughters of Servicemen. Over the years the services provided by the Charity have changed to continue to meet the needs of our local families (both Service and civilian). Today sees Alexandra House providing full and sessional daycare for children aged from 18 months until the start of formal education.
Alexandra House is Ofsted registered and delivers quality childcare throughout 48 weeks of the year from a large detached property, sitting in its own grounds in North Plymouth. Children are able to play and learn in a safe, stimulating and fun environment both indoors and outdoors and are supported by adults who understand and care about them. We provide a spacious, safe and secure outdoor learning environment which includes all weather canopy protection. Children have free-flow access to the outdoor curriculum and lots of opportunity for boisterous physical play and exploration. Staff are well qualified early years professionals who work collaboratively with our parents and carers to support the welfare, learning and development needs of the children. Our online child development records which include photos and videos of the children whilst in nursery, can be accessed from anywhere in the world with an internet connection and encourage the involvement of our parents, carers and families both at home and while serving away. We welcome the involvement of our parents and carers as we plan for the children's individual learning and next steps. With our long Service history, our staff understand the needs of Service families and the impact of deployment on family life and can offer additional support and signposting to those that need it.
Our services are flexible and childcare is offered across 19 different sessions ranging from 3 hours per week to 45 hours per week. Each child has an allocated key person to meet the child's needs whilst in nursery so parents and carers can feel reassured that their child will be safe and happy in our care. We offer settling-in sessions for every child with their parent(s) to allow our families to feel secure and confident with the quality of care, learning and development that we offer.
Note/Restrictions: Alexandra House offers a 10% discount to our Service and ex-Service families.
