Our Staff

The quality and experience of our staff is what makes us special and we understand that they are undoubtedly our most valuable resource.  Our robust recruitment procedures ensure that we employ only the most dedicated practitioners. We have a broad range of ages and experience within our team and many of our practitioners are long standing members of the Little Rascals team.

Our graduate led team of staff, including two Early Years Teachers, provide inspiring opportunities, which encourage the enquiring, expanding thoughts and imaginations of the children, in our homely nurturing environments. In addition we ensure that all of our staff hold a full Paediatric First Aid qualification, which is regularly updated.

'We highly recommend Little Rascals as a nursery. Right from our very first visit we have been thoroughly impressed both with the provision made for children in their care and with each and every member of staff we have had the pleasure of meeting. The level of care and professionalism is outstanding. Our twins settled in very quickly and continue to love each day they spend at nursery, which makes leaving them that little easier. The Little Rascals staff do an amazing job and work so hard to build fantastic relationships with both children and parents. We have been extremely happy with our time at Little Rascals and can't thank you enough for helping our twins to thrive and flourish in a safe, caring and stimulating environment. Thank you'
