Nursery Ants


Welcome to Nursery Ants – Two Year Old Nursery

We welcome you and your child to our Two Year Old Nursery! We are excited to work with our youngest children at Crossley Hall as they start their journey into school life. We look forward to getting to know you and your child; please approach the adults in class if you have any questions or comments. We are always happy to help!

Settling in

Whilst your child is two, we encourage parents to bring their child into nursery and help them to settle in ready for the session. This is particularly important because they are still very young. It will help your child to develop in confidence as it may be the first time they have left the family and engaged with unfamiliar adults. Members of staff care and nurture for them to ensure they feel safe, secure and happy.  We will always feedback to you at the end of the session with any important information.


In the Early Years we offer a play-based curriculum, meaning pupils can learn about things they are interested in through play. For example, children are really enjoying learning nursery rhymes through songs, games and creative activities. You will notice that adults model activities then encourage pupils to have a go by themselves! We value the independent work that they produce. If your child comes home with a sticker we will always to tell you why at the end of the day. Please give them lots of praise for this at home – it means they have done something extra special that day!
