Rascals is like a second family for our little one. Even though she has started nursery during covid, we were put to ease from day one that we are leaving our girl in very safe and capable hands. Fast forward a year and she loves going to nursery just as much! The facilities are very good, we especially love the huge outdoor space. Staff are extremely friendly and always available. Our little one’s diet is very important to us and Rascals are always accommodating with our requests. We are positive that our second little girl will love Rascals just as much as her sister.
