Our Busy Bees nursery in Harlesden offers the perfect environment for children to unleash their full potential with the extensive range of fantastic facilities on offer throughout the nursery. 

Each of the modern rooms are filled with age-appropriate activities and resources, so that children can flourish and thrive with those of a similar age. Along with the fantastic nursery rooms, we have a large outdoor area, to enable your child to discover their independence whilst taking safe risks under adult supervision.  

There are endless opportunities for your child to learn, grow and thrive during their stay at nursery. With something for every child to enjoy, your little one can take part in extracurricular activities, which include dancing, singing and musical classes, along with French lessons coming soon!  

The fun doesn’t stop there! With Roundwood Park just a stone’s throw away, our adventurous team often enjoy taking the children for a short stroll to get some fresh air and discover the local area.
