Little Rascals Daycare

Winners of the One to Watch 2018 Cumbria Family Business Awards

We are proud to share our most recent Ofsted inspection result, where we were awarded Outstanding in all areas 


Who are we?

On the 17th January 2011 we became Little Rascals Day-care ‘Childcare on Domestic Premises’ We are continually furthering our knowledge by attending core training and other courses of interest.

Little Rascals is keen to support students from local colleges. Encouraging prospective practitioners to understand how children learn best in a home from home setting with a low child / adult ratio and the importance of good ‘teaching’ is to care, listen and be responsive to children’s interests and ideas.

In 2014 both Suzanne and Derrian successfully completed their BA Degree’s in Early Years Leadership with Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS)

Little Rascals aim.

Here at Little Rascals we aim to offer a home from home, happy environment where the children feel safe and relaxed. During your child’s time with us we will offer them a wide choice of activities from baking to crafts through group and independent play. Every day with us provides a balance of learning and play. All children are given their own space and chance to have some quiet time or a nap. We also attend many community lead activities including Dance, rhythm time and swimming where ‘our children’ can meet with their peers for social interaction. In 2012 we began attending ‘Wellies and Worms’, a Forest pre-school session at Goodly Dale School in Windermere. This supports children’s transition to one of the settings feeder schools by ‘getting to know’ their future school with the security of their key person.
