Seymour House Day Nursery Schools have been providing outstanding education and care for over 25 years. The nursery on Salcott Crescent is a contemporary purpose designed nursery school, set in over half an acre within the Wick. The nursery has three age specific gardens to which all homebase rooms have direct access.

Salcott Crescent Nursery has an outstanding educational programme, including Prepared for School Programme, ensuring children are prepared for the 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 4.938 for Salcott Crescent Nursery (Seymour House) is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.938

  • 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 4.024 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Salcott Crescent Nursery (Seymour House) is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.274

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

Our son absolutely loves going to Salcott Crescent Nursery and the staff there are great with the kids. There is a good variety of activities that they do and he always looks forward to telling me what he has been doing at nursery when I get home from work. The staff show great empathy and care toward the children and this results in our son telling us that the teachers are his best friends! I can not really say anything but good things about this place, it has really helped in the development of our son's personality and learning.

Our little one has attended from 8 and a half months old, thoroughly enjoys their time in the nursery and gets on famously with all the staff, teachers, managers and everyone in-between. The nursery offers a wide range of activities for the children day-to-day to ensure they progress in all aspects of their development while keeping the environment interesting. The children enjoy familiar activities and new, different activities, practicing existing skills and developing new skills. The teachers and staff do a fantastic job at supporting the children, offering guidance and giving comfort. While in the setting all their needs are expertly taken care of, from cognitive and physical development through health, well-being and nutrition. Our little one loves telling us all about the day and activities in the evening and constantly talks about their teachers which clearly demonstrates the huge positive impact the carers and the environment have and how much they enjoy the setting.

My daughter has been attending Seymour House for around 3 years and I cannot fault the nursery at all. All the staff are very smart and well presented, very friendly and the nursery is always spotless. My daughter loves going there and enjoys all the activities and learning on offer. There are very good outside spaces for the children to play and the resources available for the children to use are also excellent.
Food is provided to the children and again this cannot be faulted.
Overall I am delighted with Seymour House and will be sad when my daughter leaves to start school in September.
