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.

All the staff are fantastic; very friendly and chatty and genuinely care about the welfare of the children. It’s very easy to recommend the nursery due to the quality of the staff.

Denise

Such a great team in the Blue room who persevered so much to help my daughter build confidence. Special thanks to Tegan, Ashley, Georgia and also Millie who she talks about all the time.
Will miss you all very much!

Rebecca

The team in the Yellow and Orange rooms at Highfield Lane are amazing. They’re so kind, caring and my daughter has an absolute ball with them. It’s run beautifully by Hannah and the team, and I’m honestly so delighted that Rae gets to spend her time there. Makes us feel very safe and confident in the knowledge she’s well loved and looked after. Thank you.

Mrs Constable

The range of activities set up for the children are broad with all the children able to engage and develop a range of their skills. The thought, time and care that go into preparing these are evident with many of the activities being adjusted to the children’s needs and interests. The progress my child has made in his development levels is fantastic and he has had the chance to try many activities that I would not be able to provide at home.
