Ford Dunton
Meet the Team


Hello, I'm Lauren Nowlan

I am the Nursery Manager of the Ford Dunton Nursery in Basildon.

I completed my BA Hons in 2009 in Early Childhood Education and Studies and continued to work within the industry. In 2014 I desired more of a challenge and decided Seymour House was the company for me. I joined as an Early Years Educator bringing with me 8 years of experience working with children aged between 0-11 years.

During my time at Seymour House I have used all training opportunities available including the Skills Development Programme, progressing to Senior Early Years Educator and now onto Nursery Management. I am committed to providing outstanding practice at our nursery and sharing with you our fantastic team.

I look forward to showing you round and welcoming you to Ford Dunton Nursery.


Hello, I'm Emma Morris

I am the Head of Early Years Practice at Dunton Nursery in Basildon.

I joined Seymour House as a student whilst studying for a degree in Early Childhood Studies.  It was during this time I realised this was the organisation I wanted to work for as we shared the same ethos, values and high standards. I started as a full time Early Years Teacher in 2010 at Springfield Road Nursery, Chelmsford and after completing my EYT, I then transferred to Lawn Lane Nursery and then became a Manager at Basildon Hospital Nursery School.  I am delighted to join Ford Dunton Nursery as a Head of Early Years Practice and look forward to welcoming you to our outstanding day nursery school.

I am extremely passionate about the Early Years and providing an enriching learning environment for all children to develop. It would be a pleasure to show you around our Ford Dunton Nursery and allow you to see the outstanding care and education we provide
