Hello, I'm Jess Ratcliff

Having worked in other industries for 10 years, I knew that I would like to pursue a career within childcare because I enjoy seeing children learn and achieve.

After a year of training and placement in other setting while working in Seymour House Day Nursery Schools part-time, I was offered a full time position in here where I took advantage of the training opportunities Seymour House has to offer and I was promoted to Senior Nursery Educator. Witnessing the children grow and blossom has motivated me to study further to lead the team in continuing our outstanding standards.

With the support from the team and the organization, I was able to achieve my CACHE Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services and was promoted to the Nursery Manager at Broomfield Hospital Day Nursery School in Chelmsford.

I would be delighted to welcome you to our outstanding setting and meet our friendly and passionate team and show you what Seymour House Day Nursery School has to offer.


Hello, I'm Kerry Fletcher

I am the Head of Early Years Practice at Springfield road Day Nursery, Chelmsford.

 I am very passionate and enthusiastic about the Early Years and have worked in Early Years for over 9 years. After obtaining my BA Honors Degree in Early Childhood Education, I joined Seymour House Day Nursery Schools as an Early Years Initial Teacher Trainee. Since then, I have gained my Early Years Teacher Status and have progressed to the Head of Early Years Practice role.

My favourite aspect of my job is watching children learn and grow and achieve their next milestones. I really enjoy extending children’s learning and supporting others to provide outstanding practice. 

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to visit us here at Springfield Road and showing you our outstanding nursery!
