Broomfield Hospital Nursery (Seymour House)

Broomfield Hospital, Pudding Wood Lane, Chelmsford CM1 7SS

Seymour House Day Nursery Schools have been providing outstanding education and care for over 25 years. The nursery at Broomfield Hospital is an early 19th Century coach house set in over an acre that has been specially converted to meet the needs of young children. The nursery has five cosy homebase rooms with two large gardens which are accessed directly from the homebase rooms. The Broomfield Hospital nursery serves parents employed at Broomfield Hospital and the local community.

Broomfield Hospital Nursery offers an outstanding educational programme, including a Prepared for School Programme, which ensures children are ready 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 Broomfield Hospital Nursery (Seymour House) is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 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 3.1 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Broomfield Hospital Nursery (Seymour House) is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.100

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

This is a wonderful and professional nursery with very high standards and excellent staff.
I would not hesitate in recommending Seymour House to any parent.
My daughter has been in the nursery for over three years and started when she was just over a year old.
It will be a sad day and the end of an era when she leaves to go to school this September.
