Lawn Lane Nursery (Seymour House)

Lawn Lane, Springfield, Chelmsford CM1 7PP

Seymour House Day Nursery Schools have been providing outstanding care and education for over 25 years. The nursery on Lawn Lane is purpose-built and set within an acre of land in the centre of Chelmsford.

Lawn Lane Nursery has three cosy homebase rooms, which all have direct access to a large garden area. The nursery offers an outstanding educational programme, including Prepared for School Programme which ensures children are prepared for their transition to school.

To ensure an outstanding level of care, education and service, Seymour House have developed a dual leadership structure. The nursery manager manages the nursery whilst the Head of Early Years Practice (HoEYP) leads the educational practice. This allows for a greater level of specialism in each role and is more robust when combined. All HoEYP’s are qualified teachers or hold the EYP/EYT which is the early years equivalent to the QTS. The nursery manager and HoEYP lead a team of enthusiastic Early Years Educators all of whom hold childcare and education qualifications.

Websites and prospectuses are helpful, but the best way to decide if Seymour House is right for your family is to visit the nursery. The team would be delighted to welcome you into the nursery and share all that Seymour House has to offer.

Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 5 for Lawn Lane Nursery (Seymour House) is calculated as follows: ( (35 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 5

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.841 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lawn Lane Nursery (Seymour House) is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.341

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

When I drop my daughter off in the morning she is so excited to be there she never makes a fuss about me leaving. The staff are amazing, the children eat different food and do different activities every day, I am so so glad my daughter goes here.

I can't recommend Lawn Lane Nursery enough. The staff made us feel comfortable and at ease, from the minute I went there for a look around to when she had her first day. I was feeling emotional and apprehensive about her going to nursery but I didn't need to worry; the facilities are great and I loved hearing that the children spent a lot of time outside playing, exploring and learning. The portal for the parents is a great way to keep in touch and see what your child has been up to during their day there. Our daughter experienced a medical set back and the staff couldn't have handled it any better. I was informed straight away and the support from them from start to finish was incredible. I have no worries at all when I take her to nursery as I know she is in excellent hands and well cared for. She always finishes her day with a big smile on her face and spends the next week repeating the names of the staff and her friends which to me is a great sign. Thank you.

Our son attends the Lawn Lane Nursery two days a week and our first child attended this nursery also. My wife and I hold this Seymour House in the highest regard for education, nutrition, cleanliness and staff excellence. We really can't ask for more! Our third (six months old) child is already signed up for later in the year!

Keep up the brilliant work!

Thanks.
