Claire Hill-Burton

"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 2011.

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 excited to have opened our Highfield Lane Nursery in St Albans in mid-2016.

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."
