About Springfield Road Nursery

Set within a charming Victorian three storey house in Springfield, just to the east of Chelmsford city centre, Springfield Road Nursery provides a home from home nurturing environment for our children to thrive and grow. Our homebase rooms are not only warm and calm spaces for children to play and learn but are also bright and airy, with beautiful bay windows which look out into our fun and engaging outdoor classroom. 

The children love to explore and be curious outside, especially when they are within our kitchen garden where they can engage with nature and explore fun growing activities. Springfield Road Nursery also has its very own library full of wonderful fiction and non-fiction books, inspiring children’s love of reading with their friends and parents. 

Springfield Road Nursery is one of four Seymour House nurseries in Chelmsford.

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.

Despina and the girls in the Yellow Room have supported Freddie very well in his development. Freddie has an enjoyable time at nursery which gives us peace of mind and comfort to know that he’s been looked after very well.

Isobel

We continue to be impressed by the excellent care and support that our children receive at Seymour House. Huge thank you to all the team.

Lynsey Phillips

Just a big thank you to Jess, Kerry and the Nursery Class team for being so welcoming. George has settled really well and I believe this is down to the wonderful team and their approach. I love the updates on Parent Zone, particularly on George’s first day – lots of updates for an anxious Mummy! George is gaining confidence in trying new foods, thanks to the variety of food on offer and again the fantastic input from the team. Hopefully this will continue and he will continue to eat a bit more.
