    "Thank you for all you do"

    "Little Green Rascals is a caring, nurturing and fun place to be. We moved our eldest here and our youngest now attends. They are happy and confident girls and this is in part down to the love and dedication of the Rascals team. Thank you for all you do."

    "Our daughter loves the nursery"

    "Staff have great communication with us, overall fantastic. More importantly, our daughter loves the nursery and her development is great. The location is fantastic, food for the children covers all styles and types and helps my daughter who has intolerances."

    "Absolutely incredible setting"

    "Absolutely incredible setting. My child absolutely loves going and has come along so much already even though he has only been attending a month. All of the staff have been incredible and have helped him settle in so well. The menu is incredible and enough to make me jealous."

    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 close-knit and
eco-friendly city nursery

"I love my job. It is such a nice feeling coming to work and enjoying what I do each and every day, and the rascals that I look after play a big part in that. Since being very young I have always wanted to work with children.

I completed my Early Years teacher qualification to enable me to offer children some wonderful quality learning opportunities."
