About the employer

Hello and welcome to Alphabet Lanes Nursery & Pre-School. We are a setting that welcomes everyone. We strive to put children we work with and their families first. Alphabet Lanes Nursery and Pre-school is a co-operative team that listens and communicates in the most beneficial way; by being a reliable hard working team. Alphabet Lanes started in 2012 with a free group for young mothers in the West Norwood area by providing a free early years activity group. The sessions were funded by the Big Lottery and were used to support parents and carers to play with their children and encourage positive parenting. The group later developed into a full time early years provision.
