Fun-Filled Learning at Pannal Ash

The dedicated childcare team at Busy Bees Harrogate Pannal Ash deliver a programme of stimulating and exciting activities and experiences to maximise the potential of every child and their development. Our action-packed, fun-filled rooms – designed to meet the physical, emotional and educational needs of each of our key age and stage groups, offer everything from messy and sensory play to the more structured classroom activities you’d expect to see in a preschool room.

We also offer extra-curricular sessions so children can take advantage of structured physical activities with lots of added educational value. There is no obligation for children to take part and a nominal charge is covered as external companies facilitate these session. Activities include Soccerkidz and Enjoy-a-ball – both sports-based coaching teaching motor skills, coordination, discipline and teamwork.

We also offer stay and play sessions throughout the year.
