Seymour Early Years

At Seymour Early Years, we believe in the uniqueness of each child, the need for children to develop their skills and abilities at their own individual rate, and the development of the whole person - intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

We provide:

  • A safe, caring and nurturing environment where children feel a sense of belonging and self worth.

  • Qualified and dedicated staff who monitor your child's progress.

  • A varied and stimulating learning program aimed at developing life skills and competencies.

The centre is open for 48 weeks per year from 7.00am until 6.00pm.

Our Centre

The learning journey at Seymour Early Years takes children through four specially designed spaces - carefully created to cater for the needs and development of different ages.

Kady Learning Space (Six weeks to three years old)
  • A continuation of the home environment, where girls and boys feel safe and loved, whilst also learning to be independent and part of a larger group
Enya Learning Space (Three years old)
  • Girls and boys in this group discover, explore and create as they develop independence and learn to be an active member of their community
Ainsley Learning Space (Four years old)
  • Girls and boys further develop their relationships and more complex thinking, communication and language skills
Alloway (Four years old, onwards)
  • Alloway provides a rich, play-based learning environment for girls and supportive precursor to school
