Our Nursery

Crookhill Early Years is based on the school site of Crookhill Primary School, and is privately owned and managed by Mrs Kelly Murray and Mrs Cheryl Metcalf. The nursery is built on the school field with a beautiful outdoor area. 

We are a very caring and enthusiastic team who are all parents ourselves as well as highly qualified early years practitioners.  

Our nursery aims to provide high quality care and education for pre-school children and ensure each child -

  • Enjoys a safe and stimulating environment.
  • Is given generous care and attention through our high ratio of staff to children.
  • Is given opportunities to join with other children to play, work and learn together.
  • Is supported to extend his/her learning and development by building on what he/she can already do.
  • Is supported by a key person who oversees their progress and development.


We work in partnership with parents to help children learn and develop.  Parents can expect to be -

  • Valued and respected
  • Kept informed and consulted
  • Involved and included at all levels


We believe that a positive relationship between parents and ourselves is crucial to the child’s well being, development and progress.  “Children benefit most where there is a trusting and mutually supportive partnership” (Ofsted 2001).
