About Us
At Little Rascals we use ‘learning through play’ as a non-negotiable principle of how we work with children.

A high quality nursery education is about much more than colours and shapes, numbers and letters. It’s about learning to be independent, confident, strong and curious.

It’s about developing children’s natural joy and wonder at the world they live in.
Welby Lane Nursery
The Welby Lane setting was our first nursery and opened its doors in 2007. It is a small and intimate nursery providing care for 42 children. The nursery is set within a small, detached house with a warm and homely feel. Each room within the building has access to its own outdoor area, which forms an extension to our indoor environments. Outdoor activities form a large part of our daily learning provision and children are provided with opportunities to access the outdoors each and every day giving them the freedom to explore, learn and play.
High Standards of Learning
The learning opportunities provided for the children are further embellished with regular activities such as music lessons, baby sign classes, cookery, forest school, trips out and animal petting sessions.

Staff skillfully document each child’s journey of learning and the development that takes place whilst at nursery. This is recorded using some software called Tapestry, which allows families to log in and receive regular observations about what their child has been learning whilst at nursery. We firmly believe that parents are children’s first educators. Therefore we actively encourage parents to share information about what their child likes to learn about whilst at home.
Dedicated Staff
We have a graduate-led team of practitioners who have been carefully selected for their passion, enthusiasm and experience. Staff are dedicated to providing the best for your child and work closely with families to provide excellent care and communication.

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.
