Nursery Bears

Welcome to Nursery Bears! – 3 Year Old Nursery

We are really looking forward to teaching your child during their first year of school. It’s an exciting time – you will find that once your child has settled in, they will love coming to Nursery and telling you about all their day. Whilst this page will offer some helpful information, please always feel as if you can approach the adults working with your child if you have any questions or comments. Our door is always open!

Settling in

Currently, we are encouraging parents to leave their child in the cloakroom to support their developing independence. Whilst this may be upsetting for members of your family, it will aid the settling in process and help your child to develop in confidence. 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.


At Crossley Hall we aim for pupils to become increasingly independent in order to prepare them for their future. At the age of three, we encourage children to walk rather than be carried by staff or parents; this helps their physical development. They will work towards taking off or putting on their own shoes and coats, as well as independently caring for their things. We also try to ensure pupils are toilet trained as soon as possible. In order for this to be successful, it is important to have regular communication between home and school. Please ask if you would like any further support with this.
