Busy Bees Before & After School Club

bblogoBusy Bees provides a safe and caring environment for your children before and after school hours. Busy Bees is available to all children from Reception to Year 6 and can be pre-booked for use on a regular basis or just used occassionally.

Fun for children

Busy Bees offers a range of fun, active, stimulating and restful activities for your children to enjoy before and after school. Children can choose from a large selection of themed activities that include craft, outdoor games, computers and toys.

Your children can enjoy extra time after school to play with their friends, and have a chance to make new ones too.

Not only for working parents……

Busy Bees is available to everyone and you do not have to use this service on a regular basis. Your child must be pre-registered with Busy Bees before using the service and you only need to do this once.

Whether you have appointments, courses, having a day out, or perhaps one child attends a club, using Busy Bees will give you that extra bit of time and peace of mind. If space is available you can even use Busy Bees at short notice.
