    "The staff are really friendly and welcoming"

    "Little Green Rascals has been a brilliant nursery for our three-year-old daughter. The staff are really friendly and welcoming, and always trying to find fun and interesting activities for the children to do. There are great indoor and outdoor areas and it really feels like a home from home for our little one - who can be a rascal at times."

    "I can't praise the nursery and staff enough"

    "I can't praise the nursery and staff enough. My husband and I are so happy to have found such a lovely, warm and welcoming environment for my daughter to spend her time while we work. The little touches for parents mean a lot and show they understand how hard it can be balancing work and childcare. She is clearly very happy and enjoys her time as a rascal."

    "The staff go above and beyond"

    "My son has been to previous nurseries in the past but none of them compare to Little Green Rascals. The staff go above and beyond for every child in their care. I feel like they really care about every child’s development in their care. I would recommend Little Green Rascals to anyone."

    Simple and straight-forward

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself.

    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many familiesoff choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.

A fun, creative nursery with an
eco-friendly focus

"I have been at Little Green Rascals for almost 8 years, I started my journey at our Tadcaster Road nursery, before being the Room Leader in Cheeky Hens and becoming the Deputy Manager there in 2017. I love working in the rooms with the rascals and supporting staff within their own professional development."
