Delivering outstanding early education

We believe that working together with parents achieves the best outcome for children’s learning and development. So, we’ve created engaging early education resources that are available for free to parents of children at our nurseries. Our resources support literacy and maths but also communication, critical thinking, creativity, cooperation, curiosity.

Teaching children to read and write

Discover how we teach our nursery school children to read and write by introducing letters and sounds, while practising listening and speaking. Before long, children start to recognise familiar words automatically and read new words by decoding them quickly. As soon as children can read independently, the emphasis shifts from learning to read, to reading to learn.

Introducing numeracy to children

Find out how we introduce numeracy to our nursery school children using Dragon Maths. This is an effective learning process that was developed at Seymour House to give children a firm foundation in numeracy. Dragon Maths gives children the confidence to master arithmetic at primary school, mathematics at secondary, and opens the door to the stem subjects: science, technology, engineering, and maths.

Our Team

Our skilled and caring team will help your child love their time at nursery and will ensure they are prepared for school and beyond!

I joined Seymour House in 2019 as an Early Years Educator, I knew immediately that I had the same value and passion for care and education. I have progressed to Nursery Manager by participating in the outstanding training opportunities across the settings. Having shared my knowledge and passion across other Seymour House nurseries I am extremely proud to be leading the team here at Ford Dunton. I look forward to welcoming you into our outstanding learning environment and meeting our passionate team.

Kelly Francis

Alex has done brilliantly since starting at nursery, he’s so confident and seems so excited to come to you each day. I’m very happy with the care he is receiving and the new things he gets to try each day.

Steven

The parentzone APP is an excellent tool for me to plan my child’s afternoon/evening based on what has happened that day. Our key personnel have been fantastic throughout Henry’s time at Oak tree and really helped with his development.

Mr and Mrs Stevens

We are incredibly impressed with the nursery setting and staff. The nursery staff show a real knowledge of our child’s personality and development, and are brilliant at celebrating his achievements! We really like receiving updates on what he has done at nursery via the app. The video observation each morning is really useful, as we watch this back with our child in the evening when he gets home so we can talk about things he has done at nursery with him. Thank you for all you are doing!

Mr and Mrs Henderson

The Nursery is excellent.  I am 100% confident that my daughter is being looked after fantastically well whilst I am at work.  The Team are excellent, they are well spoken and always polite and take a real interest in the childrens achievements.
