Little Green Rascals are committed to exceptional childcare, having opened the first fully organic day nursery in the North of England. While taking pride in quality interiors and play resources, the provider also pursues a Forest School ethos, helping children to learn through natural and imaginative play. A number of awards and accolades have been achieved since it was founded. Little Green Rascals believe in an environmentally-friendly approach and their nurseries contain different areas for each age group. All of the food is organic or ethically sourced from local providers. The kitchens pride themselves on their award winning menu's on a 4-week cycle that introduce the children to new flavours and textures, whilst giving them a healthy, balanced diet.
The kitchen's also cater for all allergies and dietary requirements, and the children are involved in the nurturing of vegetables from their own plot.
The children spend all day every day in the beautiful gardens, whilst also using the space at the York Maze. When at the forest, children learn independent play in a controlled, but open, environment. they establish lasting relationships and learn to take calculated risks.
The staff regularly undertake training and development opportunities to contribute to a skilled team, which consists of two teachers, two EYPs, numerous graduates and qualified staff which the providers are very proud of!
