Who we are
Offering a safe place for your little one to learn, play and grow
We provide a nurturing and stimulating environment, the perfect start for your child’s learning journey.
Set in a stunning three-storey red brick building, our nursery welcomes 118 children each day, who come to play and learn in a secure and inspiring environment.
The physical and mental well-being of each child is of paramount importance to us here at Little Green Rascals, which is why we are strong advocates of a good hug, as we know it can go a long way in calming a child who feels anxious about being separated from their parents or caregivers.
Our nursery has 6 rooms, each operating according to an Ofsted regulation ratio and follows the basic stage of early childhood to ensure that every child can realise their full learning potential. Each room is designed and filled with inspiring resources to suit the appropriate age range.
Wiggly Worms: Here our youngest babies spend their days learning and exploring through sensory activities. Developing good relationships is important at this age range and our staff are there to help you and your baby settle within this cosy and welcoming environment.
- Registered for 118 children aged 0 – 5 years
- Child-interest led approach
- Qualified, dedicated and child centred team
- Nutritious and organic menus prepared in-house

"The staff are the backbone of this place""My boy has been going to Little Green Rascals Tadcaster Road since he was 10 months and his journey throughout the years has been wonderful. He has become very close to his key workers in every room and absolutely loves going to the nursery. The staff are the backbone of this place and you couldn’t ask for more."
"She loves the staff and her key worker!""Really pleased with Little Green Rascals Tadcaster Road! My daughter has flourished since joining. The staff are welcoming as soon as you walk in and the tell is my daughter’s reaction to going to nursery - it took her about two mornings until she ran in without looking back, which is always a good sign. She loves the staff and her key worker!"
"A wonderful, nurturing environment""Little Green Rascals is a wonderful, nurturing environment for the children that attend. The staff are caring and qualified in their field and my little one loves her days at nursery. As a very anxious first-time mum they provide the reassurance and support that I need that, my precious baby, is in the best place for her development."
"As manager of Tadcaster Road, I get the best of both worlds: spending time with our wonderful Rascals, watching them grow and develop into confident little learners, and mentoring and supporting the most amazing staff to achieve great success."
