Education

“Priya’s development has been beyond expectations and the level of care offered by ALL the staff has been exceptional. All staff have been very helpful and have guided us well in all aspects of Priya’s development, a credit to your Nursery.

It’s also nice to be greeted by all your staff with enthusiasm and professionalism each day.”

Little Rascals provides education through a framework, known as The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which includes the following areas:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy, Communication and Language
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the world
  • Physical Development
  • Expressive Art and Design

We believe in enhancing this special time, by providing a fun and lively environment to support the development of your child’s knowledge, skills and confidence.

Each stage of your child’s development is carefully planned, monitored and communicated. We use a system called Tapestry, which is an online journal recording all the learning and fun of children’s early years education. This unique journal is shared online with parents, who can see special moments, view and add to their child’s progress. Your child’s journal is private and not available online to anyone else.

“Little Rascals has made Rylan the happy, funny, confident and most of all clever little boy he is. I couldn’t have picked a better nursery for both my boys to learn in.”

Transition to School

The team at Little Rascals have a strong network with local primary schools. We invite all the Primary Reception Staff into our pre-school to visit the children. This introduction proves to be very positive for the children.

We help our children to build the confidence, independence and skills they need to help them start school and provide all the assistance required to make this transition as smooth and successful as possible.

“The facilities and staff of Little Rascals are wonderful, our two daughters have both enjoyed their time here immensely, the staff are all wonderful. My girls are more than ready to go to school.”

Graduation

When you leave Nursery, this can be a very emotional time for everyone as close bonds have been formed over the time you have spent with us.

The Graduation ceremony is organised to enable our Key Worker and the Team to have a final celebration with you, give the children a keep sake of their time with us and to wish you all the very best for the future.

“I’d like to pass on my thanks to the Little Rascals team. Franky has really enjoyed himself at Nursery. The whole environment couldn’t have been better. Well done on a great job.”
