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.

Jennifer

We all love the nursery. Eve thinks Leanne and Despina are brilliant! She enjoys everyday and we couldn’t be happier with how she gets on. Tristan has settled in so well. Becky and Charlotte take such good care of him. We love the updates and pictures posted online during the day, and the information provided at the end of the day.

Louise

Very happy with the nursery. Very Grateful to the team that they have continued to operate in challenging times with covid. Team are always very polite.

Hailey

The nursery are doing a great job of supporting Aaron’s learning as well as his growth and development in areas like toilet training. They provide excellent support for other upcoming changes, like the arrival of a new sibling.

The love and care are excellent as always!

Nicola

I am very pleased with the care the ladies provide for Lucas, the app and the range of activities and opportunities for learning.

Alexandra

Isla had a wonderful year in the nursery and the Nursery Team did a great job supporting her learning and development.

Lee

Clare and Hannah have been absolutely fantastic with Lenny. Not only are they always professional and friendly with us, they really show care and concern for Lenny. They’ve made Lenny’s first 6 months I nursery an absolute joy. We love seeing what he’s been doing on the app and know that he is having such a great time.

Georgina

I’ve always said how lovely you all are and how much Giorgio enjoys coming here. Every time he comes home on a Friday he is like a different child it’s incredible. Everyone here is so supportive and there isn’t anything I would want to suggest to change our experience. I am so sad to not have Shannon as his key worker but I am excited for Giorgio to form the same lovely bond with Nadia 😊

Alison

We’ve been really happy with the care given to Beatrix and the activities that have been on offer. Thank you to all in Orange Room.

Jodie

We think all those in green room are fantastic! Kelsey is amazing and Grayson really does love her and all the other girls in there too. Kelsey always gives us so much info when we pick him up and tells us about his day and we love that. We will all be really sad (and excited) for him to move up in September.

Charlotte

We continue to be so happy and impressed with Seymour House. Amy and Charlie provide great leadership and support and we cannot speak highly enough of the support Kirsty, Nadia and Daniela have given Harry! Every pick up Nadia provides us with a bit of a progress update on any areas of Harry’s development we’ve had concerns with or that she’s seen improvement. It’s lovely getting these real time updates!

Abby

We value and appreciate the support that all staff at the nursery have given Bella. Whenever she spends the day at nursery, we know that she is well cared for – which is the most important thing for us – and takes part in lots of fun learning activities. We have seen such a big change in her development and we know this has been supported and developed at nursery.

Kirsty

Grace loves coming to nursery, she cannot wait in the mornings to leave. The staff are amazing with Grace and her development is really good and well supported. Grace adores her key worker and it’s lovely to see Grace so happy.

Joanne

I love Kimberly’s nursery and so does Kimberly. My husband and I feel very lucky to be able to send Kimberly to Salcott Crescent and know Kimberly is well looked after. Thank you

Katherine

How happy Rosalyn is at nursery. Rosalyn really enjoys coming to nursery and likes all of the staff and children. Her key staff seem to genuinely enjoy her and that is so reassuring for a parent, learning and development is very important but more than that, when so young, I just want to know she is happy and enjoying every day – I just want her to feel comfortable, secure and have fun and I know if she is, then her learning, development and confidence will thrive along with it.

Jo

Lily has thrived at nursery and in particular since increasing to 3 days. She re-enacts nursery games with us at home, particularly circle time and it’s so comforting that when she is play acting being Louise, Kelsey or Cherisse, it’s always so pleasant and gives huge confidence that she is well looked after and happy on the nursery environment. We are so pleased that Charlie is now at the same nursery too and seems to have settled brilliantly so far!

Cheryl

Kirsty, Claire, Daniela and Nadia are fantastic. Jack has thoroughly enjoyed his time in orange room. They are always welcoming and informative.

Chloe Jenkins

The team at Salcott Crescent Nursery are amazing, and have made the process of returning to work so much easier for me.  I have complete confidence in them.  Alex loves them and it’s so nice to know that not only do they look after him do well but that he gets lots of cuddles throughout the day
