Brinkley Lane
Meet the Team


Hello, I'm Emma Price

I am the Nursery Manager of the Brinkley Lane Nursery, Colchester. 

I have been managing nurseries for many years and have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience which has enabled me to maintain the exceptionally high standards which Seymour House strive for.  

I am qualified to BA Hons level in early years and feel that my qualifications and experience complements the provision as I am able to contribute to the high standard of care and education provided by Seymour House.

I would be excited and extremely proud to show you and your family around our Outstanding nursery here at Brinkley Lane and highlight to you the benefits an early years education with us could offer you and your child.


Hello, I'm Leanne Bursill

I am the Head of Early Years Practice at Brinkley Lane Day Nursery, Colchester.

I graduated from University Centre Colchester with a BA Honours Degree in Early Years Education and shortly after this began my career at Seymour House as an Early Years Educator. I brought with me a wealth of knowledge and an abundance of passion and enthusiasm for providing positive experiences and learning opportunities for all children within their Early Years. Soon after this I was promoted to Senior Early Years Educator, and after having transferred to one of our sister sites, I gained the knowledge and experience to move into the Leadership Team.

As Head of Early Years Practice, I lead a team of highly experienced and knowledgeable childcare professionals who share my passion in providing Outstanding Care and Education to young children, and feel a great sense of fulfilment from watching them grow and develop. I would be thrilled to invite you and your family to visit us here at Brinkley Lane, to see our exceptional environment and meet our fantastic team.
