At Little Rascals (Darlaston) Day Nursery we are committed to providing you and your family with the best in nursery care and early learning, whilst also giving you the peace of mind knowing that your child is cared for in a safe and happy environment.

At Little Rascals we place great emphasis on both individual care and learning through play, helping children to acquire valuable social skills and to enjoy mastering the learning process.

Our whole organisation is passionate and committed to the quality of the childcare and education we provide, and believe in education through play.

This is reflected in the environment and interaction between children and staff, creating a nurturing, exciting and safe learning experience.

"Partnership working with other professionals is highly effective. Disabled children and those with special educational needs are provided with very good support at the nursery". Ofsted February 2016

Welcome to our Darlaston Branch

Stickle Bricks

The nursery is divided into rooms and groups depending on the age and level of each individual child.

Within their groups, children can explore play equipment and facilities that are designed to recognise and develop their skills under the watchful supervision of our caring staff.

This means that whenever your child starts their journey with us at Little Rascals, they have the flexibility to move between playrooms as and when their individual abilities show they’re ready for the next challenge!

Our staff recruitment is based on the qualifications, experience, enthusiasm and care they show for children.

"Children settle in smoothly as sessions are designed to meet their individual needs. The care needs of younger children are well supported by skilled and attentive staff". Ofsted Report February 2016

Staff and children spend time learning together, as they experiment with various activities, listening to a story, playing and exploring the local environment.

As your child develops they may have the opportunity to join in on experiences from visitors who specialise in dance gym and forest wardens schooling.

The children have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to take part in outdoor child chosen and adult led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor areas.

Every activity is a learning opportunity, sorting shapes and sizes introduces early mathematics, enjoying rhymes, singing and music encourages language development and painting, mark making and messy play stimulate creativity. 

We work closely with you to help with toilet training and begin to teach the children to take responsibility for their own personal hygiene by emphasising the importance of hand washing.


Creative Activity

Storytime

Each child has a “Learning Journey” in which we record their progress in each area of learning. These help us to identify individual development needs and to plan activities designed to address these. You are always very welcome to see your child’s records and to discuss them with the staff team at any time.

We hold formal parents’ evenings twice a year so that you have an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and achievements in more detail. 

Our aim is to help the children in our care to approach a major change in their lives starting school with the confidence, skills and enthusiasm for learning that will give them a valuable and enduring head start.

"Activities are based on children's interests and the environment supports their independent play and learning well. This means children settle quickly and make good progress.

Children enjoy using a wide range of good quality toys and individually designed equipment". Ofsted Report February 2016

The garden is another learning environment where they will have lots of time to practice their climbing skills, riding tricycles, bikes, pushing buggies, throwing, rolling and catching balls, and enjoying imaginative and creative play in the fresh air. 

"Outdoor play is encouraged for children of all ages. Children gain in confidence as staff introduce creative ideas that encourage them to enjoy imaginary play and develop their own ideas". Ofsted Report February 2016
