Broomfield Road
Meet the Team


Hello, I'm Claire Hill-Burton

I am Nursery Manager at Highfield Lane Nursery, St Albans.

I joined Seymour House in June 2007 as a newly qualified practitioner at our Lawn Lane Nursery, Chelmsford. Seymour House is committed to outstanding practice and development of team training which gave me the desire to progress and I became the Manager of the Broomfield Road Nursery, Chelmsford in 2010. After two fantastic years I transferred to our Salcott Crescent Nursery, Wickford where I supported the team and families in my Nursery Manager role.  I am delighted to have opened our Highfield Lane Nursery in St Albans in 2016 and enjoyed welcoming new families to the nursery and building strong links with the community.  I have now returned to Broomfield Road Nursery, Chelmsford as Nursery Manager and am excited to welcome you to our Outstanding nursery.

I am passionate about providing the best possible care and education in order to help children to develop, which I think is both vital and very rewarding.

Hello, I'm Lucy Huartson (HoEYP, BA, EYP)

After completing my Secondary teacher training in Performing Arts, I realised that my passion lay within the Early Years and I continued my studies to complete my EYP. After working in the Early Years sector for 2 years, I was given the opportunity to work at Seymour House as a HoEYP.   

I really enjoy being able to support and motivate the team to be reflective in their practice and use the EYFS to plan inclusive and challenging activities and meaningful next steps for all children within our care. Seeing how our personalised provision can promote learning and development is so rewarding and I love being able to be a part of that.
