About Young Rascals

Nicola Young

I have worked in childcare since 1989, in nurseries, as a private nanny for 6yrs and volunteering in local schools, but I had always wanted to open my own Day Nursery. In 2005 I took over The Merry Go Round Nursery in Beeston and changed its name to Young Rascals Day Nursery.

My aim has always been to provide a happy and homely environment where the children felt well loved and cared for. I feel we achieve this as we are a very small nursery with long serving staff that form close relationships with the children and have their best interests at heart. We have a very good relationship with parent’s both past and present. Most of our children have come recommended by family and friends.

  • We cater for ages between 6 wks and 8yrs
  • Open 52 wks a year
  • School holiday service
  • Offer term time only sessions
  • A discount of 10% is offered to the second sibling (at management’s discretion)
  • Good links with Sure Start
  • Weekly French lessons with
  • Dance lessons for Toddlers and Pre School
  • Excellent location and parking facilities
  • All staff are fully DBS checked
  • OFSTED registered

‘’Children engage in a stimulating range of experiences and a welcoming environment is created to ensure all children are happy and enjoy themselves. There are excellent relationships between staff, parents and carers and the welfare of the children is promoted to a high standard’’

"Absolutely amazing nursery, my son started here just over a month ago and I couldn't thank the nursery enough for how welcome they've made me and my son feel. All the staff are lovely and very supportive of my son who has speech delay and since starting at young rascals he's come on leaps and bounds, he never has a bad day and always comes home excited to go back"

"Amazing nursery, staff are friendly and Lovely brought my little girl on leaps and bounds. I love it and would recommend this nursery to anyone who would listen."
