Welcome to Little Rascals Nursery, Tunbridge Wells

Little Rascals Nursery is situated in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells, on Lonsdale Gardens.  The Nursery is housed in a stunning Edwardian converted house, and is conveniently located for both local residents and commuters, being only a short walk from Tunbridge Wells train station.

We are open full-time from 7:30am – 6:30pm caring for children from 3 months to 3 years.  At the age of 3, children transition to our sister Pre-Prep, which is located on the adjacent Clanricarde Gardens.

Our philosophy is that every child we care for deserves a calm, caring, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn.

Taking care of our staff’s wellbeing is of prime importance to us and we are proud to have been voted the 14th best place to work in the whole of the UK.

The daily curriculum and standards comply with our registration on the Ofsted Early Years Register, which monitors the overall quality standards of the early years provision, in line with the principles and requirements of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’.

We are open for registrations
and visits

 Best wishes from Sarah and the Little Rascals Nursery Team.

We are pleased to report that the majority of our children have now returned to Nursery following the relaxation of social distancing measures by Government.  We recognise that this is a continues to be a worrying and confusing time for parents of young children and that some of the information in the media may add to your concerns.

The Nursery is satisfied, having completed our own comprehensive risk assessment, that it is as safe as possible for our children to return and for our Nursery to remain open, but we are alert to the ongoing risks.

We have reached this conclusion after careful examination of the data at a local level, a detailed reopening plan based on advice from Public Health England (PHE) and an evaluation of the risk to our staff, based on their health and household risk factors.

The UK Chief Medical Officers have issued a statement on education and childcare reopening which states that there is a very low rate of severe disease in children from coronavirus (COVID-19).

However, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with additional information on the more localised picture.

SETTLING IN
Your first settling in sessions will give you and your child an opportunity to get to know your child’s Key Person.
OUTDOORS
We regularly offer opportunities for learning outdoors – giving children the freedom to explore and be physically active.
FOOD
Our menus are designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.
