My son recently progressed from the baby room to the toddler room. In the fortnight before he moved he had regular visits to get used to the staff and the children and to make his transition a smooth one. My son loves the new room and is always excited to show me what he has done that day when I pick him up. In the baby room, the staff are friendly and positive and always have time to discuss your child's day with you when you arrive to collect them. The staff are polite and personable and fill you with confidence that your child is in good care.
My son has been attending Little Rascals since January 2016 and I have been most impressed with the care that my son has been receiving. All the staff I have daily contact with are excellent and a credit to the industry. My son has an excellent bond with all the staff and I can tell he genuinely enjoys his time spent at Little Rascals and is very happy and content. His development and confidence has increased hugely and I put this down to him spending time in a happy and positive learning environment.
The nursery have been working and supporting us in relation to our daughter with a number of different things, sleep patterns, food allergies and just generally copying what we do at home. We couldn't ask for anymore and can see how much she is developing and growing all the time.
We knew from the moment we left the nursery after viewing it for the first time that it was where we wanted to send our daughter when I returned to work. We didn't get that feeling anywhere else, so it was a relief and we felt relaxed knowing she would be in safe hands. Our daughter loves spending time at nursery and has taken to it so well. We feel this is because all the staff are welcoming, caring and knowledgeable about their role. Our daughter has a dairy allergy and we were concerned about this in a nursery setting, but they have been amazing about giving her dairy free alternatives and being aware of it in her area. They are a fantastic team and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
Very happy with the nursery. Staff are very friendly and approachable. My son really enjoys going to the nursery. It is built for a nursery, so quite modern, spacious, new, lots of toys, daily different activities, variety in the menu, catering to individual needs, committed management, morning and afternoon sessions suits us. Definitely recommend.
Son is only in week three of joining Little Rascals but I would say so far the experience is positive. Our little boy is unsettled and upset when we have been dropping him off but staff seem to calm him down and get him involved with activities. Lots of feedback when calling up and checking progress through the day. Key worker is very good and really reassures me our son is settling.
Excellent, stimulating environment for my child where they enjoy socialising with friends and learning new things every day.
My son has been at Little Rascals for 2 years now and loves it! The team are all very attentive and focus on individual development needs as well as group activities. The facilities are new and purpose built and provide a great learning environment with good outdoor and catering facilities. I would 100% recommend to anyone, I feel 100% at ease that my son is safe and supported - a second home.
As an education professional used to working with small children, I can honestly say I would have no reservations recommending Little Rascals nursery. From day one both myself, and more importantly my daughter, have felt nothing but welcome and reassured by the highly professional, knowledgeable and caring members of staff. The facilities are fantastic and this is supported by well planned and age appropriate activities available daily. To see my little girl so happy when I leave her in the morning, makes my day.
After having my first child after a long time, like any parent returning to work I was extremely nervous about leaving my child at a nursery. However after enrolling my little one at Little Rascals, I was able to relax knowing my child was in very safe, caring and happy hands. I have found the staff to be very friendly and very interested in my child's learning and development. We formed a very good two way relationship updating each other on my child's development which I found very useful. The management team are very approachable and welcome feedback and ideas from parents. I would highly recommend this nursery to other parents. Their facilities are amazing and staff are excellent.
As you know I came to Little Rascals to follow Gail because as far as I am concerned she is amazing at what she does (and this has only be reconfirmed). Then to find that Sharon had joined the team was a massive bonus. So I was already confident that Jude was going to be happy at Little Rascals but I must admit my expectations have been blown away.
All the girls I have contact with (Jenny, Frankie, Andi, Hannah and Dena) are a credit to their profession. It is really refreshing to see all of them have such a passion and drive for the job they do. Just being around such wonderful people has given Jude a new confidence. Not only I have noticed this confidence but so have friends and family. I just want to thank Gail and the team for making Jude's first month such a success and I am really positive about Jude's future at Little Rascals.
Please can you pass on my thanks to the team and they have helped easy the guilt of being a full time working Mummy a little because I know Jude is in such excellent care.
Since my daughter started at Little Rascals, her confidence has grown, her speech has improved and her overall behaviour has changed for the good. Little Rascals has a very friendly and supportive staff who take the time to talk to you about your child's development and behaviour. The facilities are outstanding and the food is amazing, every where is clean.
Brilliant nursery, welcoming, friendly and helpful. My little boy went to a previous nursery and hated it but been here since it opened and loves it, can't wait to go at the start off the week. He has learnt so much. The staff are friendly and passionate about there job especially the management.
Compared to other nurseries this nursery is set in friendly surroundings, very clean and modern facilities. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to ensure your child is given the best service. I would highly recommend.
A wonderful caring team who have helped the settling in process enormously. The staff all use attention to detail and clearly care about the needs of each child. Is it clear that all the staff are passionate about children and enjoy getting to know the characteristics & personality of every child. I would highly recommend this nursery and I'm looking forward to see my son develop over the next few months as a result of his nursery experience.
First of all I knew instantly on visiting this nursery that my son would enjoy the environment and be very settled, great facility! My son is always greeted daily with the same care and smile with this in mind makes me feel very comforted that my son is happy and cared for! Staff and standards are amazing would recommend to any parent this family run business. My son has developed and I feel by the time he is ready for school, Rascal's will have prepared him with good solid basic foundations to enjoy school! Good job guys!
We were last inspected in April 2019 and maintained ‘Good’, which is excellent news for us.
