    "The practitioners are kind, friendly and helpful"

    "Little Green Rascals Organic Day Nursery is an outstanding nursery that really takes care of our little one. The practitioners are kind, friendly and helpful and our son is so comfortable with all of them. The food they provide is excellent and their use of the app to keep us updated on how his day is going is very useful too. Highly recommended!"

    "The staff are amazing!"

    "My little boy is a Wiggly Worm at Little Green Rascals Haxby. The staff are amazing! They are all very kind, caring and friendly and I am more than confident that my son is getting the best care! Throughout the day, I am kept updated with pictures and updates of my son through the Famly App which is fantastic! The recent renovations that have taken place are amazing and the nursery is absolutely beautiful with the best toys and activities available! Thank you for all your hard work!"

    "I'd recommend them to anyone"

    "Little Green Rascals Haxby have been so lovely with our little boy. He can be very timid and is late talking, but they are great at making sure he is included in activities and gets lots of cuddles and reassurance when he needs them. You can tell the bond he's formed with them by how he reacts when he sees the staff there. They do lots of great activities, spend lots of time outdoors, and they always make time if I need to tell them or ask them about something. I'd recommend them to anyone."

    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.

Village nursery with an
eco-friendly focus

I have held my NNEB qualification for over 40 years and started my career over 20 years ago. I started as a practitioner and have progressed through the ranks to Deputy and now Manager.

My youngest daughter works with me at the nursery as a practitioner - her two sons also came to the nursery but are now school age - it really is a family affair!
