'A huge thank you for the best start we could have wished for, for our princess; she has had the most wonderful, varied and rich array of experiences here, and it is with great sadness that she has to leave for school! Our daughter has become an independent, loving, interested and inquisitive young girl, and has most of all, had fun and felt loved. Hard work, team work and a strive to improve from all staff are just a few of the ingredients that make it so fantastic. we feel so lucky to experience it once again with our youngest son.'
“Wonderful, nurturing environment for babies and children with caring, friendly and well qualified staff. Little Green Rascals also offers extra curricular activities such as forest school, drama and environmental studies as well as a great deal of outdoor free flow play...not forgetting the wholesome organic food for the children!”
“Having heard some fantastic reports regarding Little Green Rascals, I decided to check out for myself. Fully organic, with a location to die for, I was immediately made to feel welcome. My son settled in without hesitation and loves his time there. A nursery that makes you feel like part of one big family is something unusual these days and I love that we have found Little Green Rascals. Their attention to detail and also to the care of my son is second to none, I go to work safe in the knowledge that my son is receiving the best care he can get”
“Little Green Rascals has the best facilities in a nursery-both outdoors and indoors- that we've ever seen (lived in London for 12 years previously and have been in many nurseries for work-purposes across UK). Caring staff. A fun, varied curriculum with the right amount of emphasis on learning. Lovely, organic food. Wonderful forest school days each fortnight. And most importantly, my daughter loves being there.”
“I rely on Little Green Rascals to pick up my children from school safely, feed them delicious food and take care of them properly. The staff do all this but so much more. Rascals is a place that nurtures, teaches, loves, laughs with, encourages, supports and understands my children - and also me! It's a place like no other."
“The overall levels of care and attention that the children receive at Little Green Rascals is exceptional. The staff really makes sure that every day is filled with enjoyable and educational activities for the little ones and they provide fantastic meals and snacks to fuel the rascals throughout the day, ensuring they have lots of energy for all of the fun! Their forest school is fantastic and, I imagine, fairly unique. We looked at lots of nurseries in the area and Little Green Rascals was head and shoulders above the others in every aspect.”
“From the very first time we visited Rascals we felt like part of the family and knew it was a special nursery. The leadership is inspirational and forward-thinking. This filters down to the staff who are always smiling, friendly and so warm and caring towards the children (and parents!). The forest school is a fantastic and unique facility. The space outdoors and indoors is used well and very well-maintained. The food is superb quality and carefully planned. I cannot praise it highly enough and feel very proud that my children are ‘Rascals’.”
“The nursery really listens to the parents' views and concerns about their child and does everything possible to ensure the smooth transition into nursery for the child. They treat the children as individuals and endeavour to support that child in the activities it is interested in. The staff are also very good at working with and including the parents in the nursery and activities are arranged that are for the parent and child together, for example camping trips. The food at the nursery is excellent and they work very hard to provide an extremely healthy balanced diet for the children.”
“Fantastic ethos and care provided to our little ones. Facilities at the nursery are brilliant. Caring staff who take note of parents' wishes and take action whenever they can to keep improving their gold standard of care. Little Green Rascals take the little ones out on fantastic trips to the forest and to see farm animals. They let the children experience all sorts of activities (and let them get as messy as they want to be inside and outside) which is so important for growing up in a balanced way.”
“ We drive 20 minutes each way to take our son to Little Green Rascals, despite the fact that there are a number of nurseries between our house and there (including one just round the corner). The staff are fabulous: they went out of their way to help our son settle in, and always seem to be thinking of new activities for the kids. And the environment and facilities are excellent.”
“ The nursery prides itself on going the extra mile to provide an environment that is home from home. From the organic foods the children eat, the biodegradable nappies the children wear and the superb outside space the nursery offers it would be a shame if my daughter didn’t attend. It is by far the best nursery in the York area.”
“ The attention to physical and mental development is excellent, the opportunities for outdoor play and stimulation is second to none and no other nursery in York offers anywhere near the fabulous opportunities that Little Green Rascals does. All the staff are fantastic, approachable, knowledgeable and show a genuine interest in all the children and clearly excel in such fantastic inspiration that comes from Vanessa the nursery owner. I couldn’t imagine my child being anywhere else, he loves his time there.”
“ No matter what time of the day I drop off or collect our son I always see smiling faces and children (as well as staff) enjoying themselves. The nursery is professionally run with high standards with are always adhered to. My wife and I selected Little Green Rascals because of its reputation for excellent care, its organic stamp and the huge range of activities it offers. It is a big decision to leave your child in someone else's care, but I know I do not have to worry about leaving him at Little Green Rascals.”
“ The moment I walked into the nursery I knew that this was the nursery for my little boy. The atmosphere, ethos and welcome left me with no doubt in my mind, giving me trust and peace of mind whilst leaving them and at work which I felt was essential. The care and relationships built with the nursery has been above and beyond anything I expected.”
