Salcott Crescent
Meet the Team


Hello, I'm Amy Farqhuar

My passion has always been with Early Years and I have followed on this pathway throughout my career to date. Having had the opportunity to work as an assessor in delivering high quality training throughout Essex I then moved on, into management in early years. 

There is no better feeling then walking around a setting and seeing the children happy, secure in a safe and simulating environment. As Nursery Manager at Salcott Crescent Nursery, I welcome you and your family to come and see the commitment and dedication that our team offer every individual child throughout their time at Seymour House. 

I look forward to welcoming you all to Salcott Crescent and continuing to work alongside an fantastic team in an Outstanding setting.


Hello, I'm Vicky Patience

I am the Head of Early Years Practice at Salcott Crescent Nursery, Wickford.

I have worked for Seymour House for over a year now. I originally joined one of our Chelmsford nurseries as an Early Years Educator and progressed to the role of Senior Early Years Educator there. I then moved over to Wickford as the Head of Early Years Practice where I support the team in delivering outstanding care and education to the children and families.

After studying away for 3 years to obtain my BA (Hons) Education and Childhood Studies I returned to Essex with the hope of working for Seymour House. After working with the company for a few months I enrolled on the Masters Early Childhood degree course with Anglia Ruskin and am currently entering my final year. Continuing my studying allows me to reflect on current developments within early childhood education which in turn supports the driving up of standards within our nursery.
